Comments on abridged Audible Version
If you are looking for an intellectual understanding of Zen and Zen practice from a non-practitioner point-of-view the abridged version captures the bare essence of the book. It is also good for a brief focused review of major concepts for a practitioner. However, if you are looking for detailed suggestions/ practce exercizes as a student of Zen, I find the unabridged version has a lot more detail that is helpful for practice. I would look forward to an audible unabridged version....
authentic, classical, complete!
