Would you consider the audio edition of Hardcore Zen to be better than the print version?
Absolutely! The author is 100% into the presentation. It is done professionally but with personality and spirited with music and the occasional sound effects. In print you miss the illustrations - in this audio presentation of the book you actually gain music and fun sound effects at just the right time.
What other book might you compare Hardcore Zen to and why?
This is a very unique book/perspective on Zen given Brad Warner's Punk background. While Buddhist fundamentals are intact and there is good clarity the insight is provided in an atypical manner. If talk of boogers and nasty farts offends you then you may not like his presentation style. However, if you are the type of person who can giggle when someone farts then you will like Brad's unique presentation style. There is no farting - just an analogy for context.
What about Brad Warner’s performance did you like?
Personality, personality, personality. Reading and listening to Zen based material can get a little dry and homogenized. While there is a time and place for everything it is nice to have some bumps in the road to keep you awake. Brad Delivers with his upbeat attitude and occasional impromptu comments “kitty off the keyboard” during the reading. But, don’t let this detract you into thinking this was not well recorded or professionally done. Audio quality and reading of the text is excellent.

Easy to listen to, down to earth, homorous mix of a rock bio and a zen manual for modern times. Really enjoyed it.
An amazing journey with Brad. Enjoyable, educational and thought provoking. Presented as a personal journey it is everything you hoped it .might be
