    Zen was uniquely suited to the Samurai of Japan. The high moral principles of Buddhism, when adopted and adapted by the Japanese warriors who became the Samurai, created an austere philosophy of singular beauty and depth. Its characteristic requirements of strict control over body and mind was exemplified by ancient warrior monks whose serene countenance, even in the face of certain death, made them much admired even by their foes.

    Amazon Customer says: "Easy to understand,Kind of preachy,but still good"
    "WOW, actually quite terrible reading."

    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    Sorry, but I found the narration tremendously difficult to listen to. Repeated pausing and consistent hesitation throughout, made for an unpleasant experience. Sadly, I wasn't able to return the item. :(
    I'm sure a different narrator would've been the key.


    Would you be willing to try another one of Nicholas Techosky’s performances?

    No, I would not.


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    I'm quite keen on the subject matter, again the only let down for me was the narration, and my inability to return the item for an exchange or credit.
