Part of the 'Complete Idiot's Guide' series.
Have you ever noticed that when you stop incessantly fretting about something - dating, work, relations with family members - you are better able to respond and deal with conflicts that arise? This, in very Western terms, is a little of how the Eastern Buddhist idea of Zen works - and it's catching on. Ever since 'Zen And The Art Of Motorcycle Maintenance', Westerners have been awakening to the notion that the Zen way works well in our fast-paced, busy lifestyles.
This book begins with the basics, telling you what Zen is, and then shows you how to use it to deal with work, home, social settings, etc. It is ideal for anyone leading a busy life who would like to strike a happy balance between the stresses of home, work, and family.
