Praise for Letters to a Dead Friend about Zen

"Warner is unafraid of sharing his own beliefs and doubts and freely questions Buddhism itself. While loaded with pop culture references and dark humor, his explanations of Zen philosophy are steeped in tradition, well researched, and ultimately respectful of the practice. . . . Warner's voice is much needed in American Buddhism."
-- Library Journal

"Warner provides an intimate, candid reflection of his Zen practice and his career as a writer and speaker in this touching work. . . . Honest and forthright, Warner's trademark irreverent voice is present throughout."
-- Publishers Weekly

Praise for the books of Brad Warner

-- Vicky Jenson, director of Shrek

"Fresh, edgy, and insightful."
-- Stephen Batchelor, author of Buddhism Without Beliefs

"There are plenty of 'Buddhist/Spiritual' authors on the market who will gladly sell you a pat on the back. Brad Warner is not one of those."
-- D. Randall Blythe, lead screamer, Lamb of God

"While Warner's approach to Dogen may be unorthodox, its freshness might be exactly what the doctor ordered for anyone wanting a way in to the old monk's still fresh perspective."
-- Adam Frank, 13.7: Cosmos & Culture blog, NPR.org

"Brad Warner cuts through the bullshit and writes with simple clarity, common sense, and humor about the most misunderstood of all spiritual paths."
-- John Horgan, author of Rational Mysticism
