Where does Zen Mind, Beginner's Mind rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?
This is, without a doubt, my number one most excellent book on zen. Add to that the remarkable presence of Peter Coyote who is reading it aloud.
What was one of the most memorable moments of Zen Mind, Beginner's Mind?
there are too many such moments by way of this or that sentence. Unpacking this book and its depth is not an intellectual exercise -- it is from the heart.
What does Peter Coyote bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?
The best matching of material to presentation that I know if in the audio book field. This is not a fact everybody has to believe. It is, instead, from my own point of view in terms of my admiration for the book itself carried over to a wonderful presentation. I am fairly sure that finding a more appropriate and sensitive reading simply couldn't be found.
Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?
Yes, although as I mention above, hearing the book several times reveals more profound sentences that, at first pass, were like jewels left on the floor,
Any additional comments?
Grateful to Audible.com for making this available!!!

This edition misses some chapters that do are contained in Shambhala's edition from 2011. It's ok anyway.

I was too hopeful this would enlighten me. the opposite occurred, not falling for that again
A complete explanation. Really enjoyed the reading and the explanations. Even if you are not a beginner you will gain a lot from this recording. Recommended
I have listened to this book over half a dozen times, and I pick up on a subtle quote that I missed each time, if you are new to Zen in my belief this is written perfectly, exceptional listening
