"An accessible and enjoyable introduction to Zen Buddhist practice-- in a reader-friendly question-and-answer format-- by two highly regarded teacher-writers. The question-and-answer format makes this introduction to Zen especially easy to understand-- and also to use as a reference, as you can easily look up just the question you had in mind.
