The American spirit of self-reliance goes hand in hand with the mystical tradition of Zen — yet it hasn’t found its own bare wire. The best revolution, and the domain of the Zen adept, is an inner one. The Zen Revolution reads like a novel, each compelling chapter revealing another nuance — the whole gamut, from origin to fiery culmination. Delving into both the spiritual and worldly aspects with equal candor, The Zen Revolution takes on the basic question of existence, perhaps the most important question we face. There’s a new adventure in every chapter, leading to an eventual breakthrough — something nearly unheard of in the Zen literature of the West.
