Publisher Comments:

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.

The subtitle says it all: there has never been a book like this.

Synopsis:

The author presents a series of fascinating stories culled from modern life, using them to illustrate the workings of Zen Buddhism for those who do not care about Zen but could nevertheless benefit from its wisdom. Original.

Synopsis:

This is not the average Zen book full of feel-good stories designed to lull readers into beautiful dreams of peace and wonder--it's a book written in an open, accessible style with biting humor that spares no one.

About the Author

Brad Warner lives in California. He has studied Soto Zen with Gudo Wafu Nishijima. If there is such a thing as a Zen Master (and there isn't), he is one (and he's not). In the early 80s, he was the bassist for ODFx (or Zero Defex), a hardcore punk band. After ODFx bit the dust, he made five albums under the band name Dimentia 13. After living in Japan for some time, he returned to the United States in 2012 to start the Dogen Sangha of Los Angeles.

Brutalison, August 4, 2012 (view all comments by Brutalison)
Stumbled upon this book as a fan of punk rock. Fell in love immediately. I learned a lot about myself and the world from this book. I had no ties to anything spiritual and this definitely changed that. I own there other books by him and they are all just as good. His writing style is casual but it has a sense of truth and clarity. If you're interested in punk rock, monster movies or zen buddhism, I recommend this book to you. It does wonders.
