“Hardcore Zen is to Buddhism what the Ramones where to rock and roll: A clear cut, no bulls**t offering of truth.”—Miguel Chen, Teenage Bottle rockets

This is not your typical Zen book.

Brad Warner, a young punk who grew up to be a Zen master, spares no one. This bold new approach to the “Why?” of Zen Buddhism is as strongly grounded in the tradition of Zen as it is utterly revolutionary. Warner's voice is hilarious, and he calls on the wisdom of everyone from punk and pop culture icons to the Buddha himself to make sure his points come through loud and clear. As it prods readers to question everything, Hardcore Zen is both an approach and a departure, leaving behind the soft and lyrical for the gritty and stark perspective of a new generation.

This new edition will feature an afterword from the author.
