“In this brief but remarkably thorough book, Boshan puts into words what it means to truly doubt. Not just to be skeptical—but to push all the way to the very foundations. Anyone interested in Zen can learn a whole lot from this little book.” —from the foreword by Brad Warner, author of Hardcore Zen

“Upbeat, insightful, and inspiring teachings—a rich resource for all Buddhist practitioners.” —Richard M. Jaffe, Duke University, author of Neither Monk nor Layman
