TWIB-VI: January 1-7, 2012

New year, new beginning. Let's see if I can't get back on track with this stuff.

1) Zen Wrapped in Karma Dipped in Chocolate - Brad Warner
I didn't really care for this book the first time I read it. I'm happy to say I found the second read through much improved, primarily because I knew to expect the highly disingenuous nudge-nudge, wink-wink airing of grudges that never identifies anyone by name (just enough identifying characteristics so that we all know who's being spoken about). Knowing it was coming, I was able to ignore it and focus on the message, which is just as spot-on and precisely presented as in all of Warner's other volumes. While this is definitely the weakest of the bunch, it's still light years ahead of 90 percent of the dren out there on "Buddhism" and thus very much merits rereads.
