"Most books try to lead you out of mystery into mastery. Rachel Ramen's book leads us to recognize and move toward the mystery that is in everyday life. Moving into the unknown is oftern where we find the healing, not by running away from it into a quick fix. She teaches that life is not broken and does not need to be fixed; it needs to be savored and celebrated." Dean Ornish, M.D.

"I believe we can change the world if we start listening to one another again. Simple, honest, human conversation. Not mediation, negotiation, problem-solving, debate, or public meetings. Simple, truthful conversation where we each have a chance to speak, we each feel heard, and we each listen well." Meg Wheatley

"The requirements of real community, such as personal commitment, honesty, and vulnerability, are so alien to our culture...that it is utterly unclear whether the citizenry will be willing to meet them...So if you do choose to explore 'the less traveled road' of community, you will be embarking on a true cultural adventure." M.Scott Peck, M.D.

Based on a 13th-century Japanese manual of the same title, this guide to modern-day Zen practice also details the history of Glassman's work in the world. His description of how he and others who work with and for the jobless and homeless will satisfy the appetites of readers whose interest is as much in business practice as in Zen practice.
