"Enlightenment Now: The Case for Reason, Science, Humanism, and Progress"
Is the world really falling apart? Is the ideal of progress obsolete?

a. This a personal reason. Since the book description says "Bring a little Zen into your education at home, and use the power of experience, mindfulness, and acceptance to create an amazing homeschooling life." I assumed it had practical advice, which was really not the case, except for the ocassional tip. (AS I said, I did not read the whole book, it might be at the end)I wish the descrption was more accurate.
b. It seems to me the book needs serious editorial work. There are "themes" that go on for pages, without really adding anything into the discussion. It seemed a little repetitive to me.
Overall I found the book to be on "reflections on zen homeschooling" than a guide to implement it. If you are looking for a book that introduces some zen principles related to education discussion, this might be for you.
If you are looking into HOW to apply bhuddism (not specifically zen) on your homeschool, I found "Buddhism for Mothers: A Calm Approach to Caring for Yourself and Your Children" much more helpful.
