I'm reading this one right now, really great so far. Aitken Roshi started the Diamond Sangha, the group that I sit with here in Seattle, and I started reading this book at a recent sesshin. It was really perfect - he goes through a lot of the basics of sitting zazen and making it through sesshin with his group, a lay group that mixes Soto and Rinzai practices, but also manages to capture much of the beauty and simplicity of traditional zen koans, commentary, and poetry. Incidentally, he started his Zen group, The Diamond Sangha, in Haiku, Maui, just a couple miles from where I was born, in about 1967. I love the Hawaii connection.
I read this book twice in a row, and then again a few months later. It got under my skin, even though it's opaque and difficult to determine a proper chronology. But the author of Miss Smilla's Feeling for Snow is back!
