A very informative look into Buddhism, Buddhism rituals, meditation, and more. Very interesting. Will definitely help you in your day-to-day life even if you don't practice Buddhism.

This was very interesting to read about and I learned so much that I had not known. I highly enjoyed this.
I just reviewed Zen Buddhism by Joshua R. Paszkiewicz. #ZenBuddhism #NetGalley

I really loved this book. I'm a spiritual seeker (my husband calls it not sticking to one thing!) and this book brought buddhism to life, giving small little pieces of information in boxes on some pages, but also giving more detailed information. I was pleased to learn that this is a series, with other spiritual practices. I'll be reading all of them.
Thank you to Quarto Publishing Group and NetGalley for an e-ARC of this title in exchange for my honest review. All opinions are my own.

I will definitely need this book in my collection when it comes out. It has all the answers I was looking for regarding Zen. The book looks extremely beautiful inside out. Love the cover. Love the content presentation and how concise yet detailed the information provided is.
It has enough information on the origin of Zen Buddhism, its respective areas of teachings and their approaches.

A definite recommendation.

Thank you, Quarto Publishing Group- Wellfleet Press, for the advance reading copy.
