Zig Zag Zen is a treasure trove--inspiritng, frightening, powerful, funny, eye-opeing, and a source of great wisdom on a subject that our society finds endlessly confusing. --Mark Epstein, M.D., author of Thoughts Without a Thinker, Going to Pieces without Falling Apart, and Going on Being
Zig Zag Zen shines by its fairness: its authors squarely face the Zig as well as the Zag. That's Zen at its best. --David Steindl-Rast, OSB, author of Gratefulness: The Heart of Prayer
Zig Zag Zen is a must read for anyone who is concerned about the future of Buddhist practice. --Tenzin Bob Thurman, chair of Indo-Tibetan studies at Columbia University
