    1. I've listened to a lot of Taigen Dan Leighton's podcasts from the Ancient Dragon Zen Centre in Chicago, and this book is, in many ways, a distillation of much of what I'd heard. Having said that, I would heartily recommend it to anyone with an interest in the Soto tradition of Zen. Taigen Dan Leighton really is coming at the Zen tradition from a good place. Not that I'm an expert, by any stretch of the imagination.

    2. A lovely, lucid, moving, and profound expression of Taigen's practice-enlightenment, informed by decades of study/translation of the work of Eihei Dogen and practice/teaching in the Suzuki Roshi Soto Zen lineage. The true taste of Zen. Highly recommended for both beginning Zen students and long-time practitioners.

    3. Good introduction and some depth to Zen. A little too political towards the end. Nice that he brought more modern musical and poetic interpretations of the ancient texts.
