From the back:
"An authoritative grasp of the most profound mysteries of Zen... The author has a happy facility for presenting the most abstruse doctrines of Mahayana Buddhism in simple summaries."

"There is no better book on Zen, especially for the Occidental student. It is easy to read and should have world-wide appeal."

"This is the first authentic book on Chinese Ch'an (Zen). The author was trained in Chinese monasteries, and at a later stage was initiated in to Tibetan Buddhism (Khagyutpa). Mr. Chang.. is acquainted with the specific difficulties and problems which we Westerners have in our quest for Zen. The book is written for us, and it is excellent.. The Practice of Zen is most valuable for all Zen students, a primer for the beginner and of importance to the serious Western student."
