The Way of Zen is a 1957 non-fiction book on Zen Buddhism and Eastern philosophy by philosopher and religious scholar Alan Watts. It was a bestseller and played a major role in introducing Buddhism to a mostly young, Western audience. The Way of Zen is divided into two sections, the first which deals with the background and historical development of Zen Buddhism, and the latter which focuses on the principles and practices.

I often wonder what people expect of a book. My impression of this book is completely opposite of the first reviewer's evaluation, which gos to show you why it is important to seek out different points of view on a topic. This book is an excellent and beautiful introduction to the philosophy and principles of Zen practice. The photographs are beautiful and blend well with the topics. Even though I have read numerous books on Zen I do not consider myself an expert on the subject. However, I always try to give an objective review of a book. This volume covers the Indian origins of Zen, the development and teachings of Zen, Zen in daily life, Zen and health, Zen and the environment and Zen and the arts.

In conclusion, this is a book for anyone who is interested in some basic knowledge of Zen.

Rating: 5 Stars. Joseph J. Truncale (Author: Haiku Moments: How to read, write and enjoy Haiku).

It certainly looks like a coffee table book but on closer inspection, the photography is mediocre and frequently either bears little relation to the text or flat out contradicts it. The book also suffers from factual inaccuracy, not surprising when the reader discovers it's written by someone from a totally different Buddhist tradition. If you want a good book on Zen try The Three Pillars of Zen by Phillip Kapleau, also available from Amazon. As for this one - leave well alone.
