Editorial Reviews

Review

No-Nonsense Zen for Beginners is useful for beginners and experienced practitioners alike. Jason Quinn breathes new life into ancient Buddhist teachings with relatable stories of how this timeless wisdom may apply to our everyday lives. Refreshing and down-to-earth, this book is the perfect place to start for anyone interested in an overview of practicing Zen.” —Jane Dobisz, author of One Hundred Days of Solitude

“Definitely the most accessible primer on the practicalities and basics of Zen I've ever read. Great for a beginner sticking their toe in; just as great for the seasoned practitioner who wants a wonderful review.” —Colin Beavan, senior dharma teacher and author of How To Be Alive: A Guide To The Kind of Happiness That Helps The World

“Every generation needs a few good basic introductions to the Zen way. No-Nonsense Zen for Beginners is a clear, inviting, introduction to Zen perfect for this moment. It really is no-nonsense. It hits the basics in a very straightforward and clear way. At the same time, it invites us into the mysterious and wonderful. Jason Quinn is a perfect person to write this book—a Zen teacher standing in Zen’s ancient lineages, he has deep experience both as a monastic and a householder practitioner. I recommend this book.” —James Ishmael Ford, author of Introduction to Zen Koans: Learning the Language of Dragons
