Good - But Not For The "Beginner"

This book had a good overall scope of Zen, however as a "beginner" I found it hard to follow at times. Those with a deeper understanding in their journey would probably benefit more than I did. I may try it again at another point in my studies.

One of the best books

Where does The Way of Zen rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

This book is in my TOP 10 list of all books.

Any additional comments?

It is the a great book about the history the history and the evolution of ZEN into its stage, which is known today. Especially the way Watts not describes it and talks about the non-describable aspects, the gaps between things in the context of eastern and western mindset make it a timeless source of inspiration.
