In an age of constant distraction, how is it possible to stay focused? If your boss is yelling at you, how do you keep from flying off the handle? And if you happen to be a stripper, or a biker, or an alcoholic, can you still be a Buddhist? Rinzler makes an effort to answer these questions in a book filled with personal anecdotes that show Buddhist practice operating in the real world. This popular Huffington Post advice columnist insists that personal growth occurs with regular meditation—regardless of the setting. He also asserts that beginning Buddhists needn’t worry if they enjoy bar hopping, eating meat, and indulging in sex, provided they devote time to the practice of meditation and embrace life as a journey or path. Another key message is that personal growth results when difficulties are regarded as sacred opportunities for learning. For all those who feel unworthy of taking on Buddhist practices due to personal foibles, this book opens the door. --Susan DeGrane

When Amazon suggested his book, “Walk Like a Buddha,” I didn’t hesitate for a moment. I purchased a used copy, as I often do, and once again, this guy just talks to me, so when I discovered he was in his thirties, I was shocked!
I’m still asking myself, how a kid his age can have such a deep and practical understanding of these Buddhist principles.
Sure there were parts of the book that were a bit repetitious, but I still felt he did a great job translating and communicating these time-tested Buddhist teachings to a western audience or culture. He has a knack of keeping things simple and practical, and I just love him for that.
Who knows, one of these days, I might have the pleasure of sitting down and having a cup of coffee with this guy.
