Great book!

If you could sum up Psychoanalysis and Zen Buddhism in three words, what would they be?

I really enjoyed this audio book. Usually the zen books have lots of mispronunciations, so I thought the reader did an excellent job with a very difficult text. Her tone seemed somehow perfect. Spot on choice! I look forward to listening to this again and again. Bravo!

A for effort D for results

Although I consider Erich Fromm a brilliant thinker, unfortunately it is not possible to understand Buddhism just by readings books. In the same way that reading about brain surgery does not give you the tools to teach how to do it or even try to do it, reading about Buddhism does not give you the tools to understand it. It is a process that takes years of study and practice (and one without the other would be a futile effort). However, for buddhist it is interesting to learn the common misunderstood concepts.
