Zen Mind, Beginner’s Mind: Informal talks on Zen meditation and practice

I’m not quite sure what to say about this book, except that I want to purchase a copy for my personal library. Nearly every word is quotable (“The best way to control people is to encourage them to be mischievous”) and needs to be digested in slow, mindful bites. The suppression of the ego is something the world seems in need of, a bit more, poignant to read during the week of the IPO of technology that enables the anti-zen, the anti-koan, the ego, the not-present because tweeting about the event. Highly recommended for anyone who is interested in enhancing or beginning their practice.
