The current Western interest in Buddhism and other Eastern religions is--am ong other reasons--both the result of and the stimulation for an entire lib rary of books purporting to bring the Wisdom of the East to an audience for whom the wisdom of the West has failed.

This is not your typical Zen book. Brad Warner, a young punk who grew up to be a Zen master, spares no one. This bold new approach to the "Why?" of Ze n Buddhism is as strongly grounded in the tradition of Zen as it is utterly revolutionary. Warner's voice is hilarious, and he calls on the wisdom of everyone from punk and pop culture icons to the Buddha himself to make sure his points come through loud and clear. As it prods readers to question ev erything, Hardcore Zen is both an approach and a departure, leaving behind the soft and lyrical for the gritty and stark perspective of a ne... View more info
