    Story
    "Enlightening Journey Down the Dharma Road"
    If you could sum up Dharma Road: A Short Cab Ride to Self Discovery in three words, what would they be?

    Insightful, accessible dharma.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Dharma Road: A Short Cab Ride to Self Discovery?

    The metaphor of The Eightfold Path as "The Eightfold Freeway".


    What does Dean Sluyter bring to the story that you wouldn???t experience if you just read the book?

    He truly gives our author a voice that fits, one that helps me see and experience some of the anecdotes shared in the book.


    What insight do you think you???ll apply from Dharma Road: A Short Cab Ride to Self Discovery?

    I'm already familiar with most of the teachings in this book, but he has helped give me a refresher from a unique point of view. And knowing that there's another Coltrane loving dharma seeker out there who sometimes gets it wrong and sometimes gets it right is reassuring.

    "Enjoyable Listen"
    Any additional comments?

    I liked this book. It was a succinct explanation of Zen Buddhism that drew on the author's experiences in real life. Zen is a hard concept to think about sometimes and I liked how Brian Haycock was able to make it very down-to-earth and understandable. He also has a wry sense of humor which I enjoyed while I was stuck in traffic listening to his book.
