From Library Journal
In his first foray into the world of garden writing, Egan (education, Simon Fraser Univ., BC; The Educated Mind) endeavors to teach readers the principles that inform the design and meaning of Zen gardens through this personal account of building his own garden in Vancouver, Canada. Unfortunately, he does not quite achieve his goal. The narrative is an amusing and heartfelt chronicle of his Zen garden adventure with a desultory sprinkling of observations about the "Zen" principles that guided his work. Egan makes only passing references to unnamed Japanese garden books and web sites he consulted for his project, though readers interested in creating Japanese gardens themselves would have found a specific list of these resources useful. An optional supplement to more standard works on Japanese garden design.ABrian Lym, City Coll. of San Francisco Lib.
