Review:
Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance is an inspiring book. On the surface, it tells the story of a father and son on a beautiful cross-country motorcycle ride. Looking deeper it is an insightful mission of self-discovery that inspires the reader to go on a journey of personal growth, to be introspective and to develop a strong character. This book will change how you look at life, and challenge you to see the world through a different filter.

Andreas Moritz In Freedom From Judgment, best-selling author Andreas Moritz poignantly exposes the illusion of duality. He outlines a simple way to remove every limitation that you have imposed upon yourself during the course of living duality.

Review:
This wonderful, lively book written by a psychologist who is also a long term Zen practitioner brings together East and West, Zen and psychology and is full of the wisdom of ancient and modern Zen Masters and the waysin which they deal with problems in everyday life. The book also includes stories and anecdotes taken from the lives of modern day students and many excellent exercises which show us how to apply Zen practice and principles to problems in our everyday lives. Don't miss this one.
