It was good and interesting writing, but made no reference to the dharma, and to be honest with you, I couldn't infer a dharmic message beyond "we're all going to die" type stuff. Not unpleasant to read, either, I just don't know why it was included in the book. I personally don't like the Zen writing style as much as the others.

  • I have appreciated the selections in this series of books and I recently purchased 2011 and 2012. These selections are always thoughtful and well written. They range widely in style and content but always make me more aware of the immensely varied persons coming to terms with Buddhist teachings and working to apply them in their lives. These writings make me aware of the "Larger Sangha"...what I think of as all those people drawn to Buddhism whether their practice is brand new, or they are just "thinking about it", or whether they are experienced and enlightened teachers. That many people are on a path of understanding and caring lifts my heart. Anyone similarly interested will find some insight and some joy in these books.

  • Second purchase - the first went to a friend. We both agree - the writing is clean and precise, as well as uplifting. It's a pleasure to read.

  • Although I'm not enchanted with all of these, overall it's been a very memorable little volume. One does not need to be a Buddhist, or even know much about Buddhism, to enjoy it.

  • A few good chapters, but the 2013 edition is so good, skip this one and purchase the 2013 !!

  • As a Buddhist in the Shambhala tradition I found it fascinating and quite current. Highly recommended for practitioners and anyone interested in current Buddhist thought.

  • I've read this entire series since they first started in 2004! Inspiring every time and it leads me to new authors whom I then enjoy reading throughout the entire year.

  • great shape, great price

  • Good book.Don't see the need to submit this kind of info. This is too time consuming. Who dreamed up this process.
