    I know that the book was bought used, but it had a fair amount of (thankfully mostly unobtrusive and neatly-done) highlighting of the moral at the end of each comic.However, the content is absolutely superb. Not only does it provide a good historical background, it has wonderful selections of various Zen works that would make for a beautiful guide on how to live one's life with less stress and less day-to-day demands that cause us problems. I read it for the Buddhist aspect, and was also quite pleased with its lessons.The translation is quite clear and easy to understand. There are a few historical foibles on part of the artist (when Japanese Zen parables are illustrated with traditional Chinese garb and mannerisms), but all in all it's a great work and well worth your time to read.

    I fell in love with this book when I was 13. The Zen teachings have helped me to understand myself and the world around me. I'm so glad to have encountered this book at such a young age. Buy this for any introspective creative children in your life.

    I wanted to give my daughter my copy of this Zen cartoon book, but wanted to retain my copy as well. Found good condition used copy on Amazon. Now we are both happy.

    I believe this is one of the only 5 star reviews I've ever given.Why a Buddhist comic book? Because you can simply open it, point to a page and work on THAT THING. If you have children and they are curious about Buddhism, voila! You have a damn comic book! If there are folk about who think it's just about sitting in a pond pondering bellybuttons, just hand them the book. Memorize the lessons and appear wise to those around you (well, or just memorize them for your own well-being).Illustrated learning is a foundation of understanding.That is all.

    Very fun. I love these comics. I've read about 40 books on zen buddhism in my life. This is a fun medium and these comics pack a lot of zen punch. I feel there's a lot of information in this terse and beautiful format! Love it!

    I bought this book about 12 years ago and have looked through it many times since. In a move a few years ago I must have lost it in the shuffle and forgot all about it. I remembered it one night and got right on line and ordered it. I love this book. It puts simple Zen philosophies to a cartoon format that is enjoyable to read. I recommend this book to everyone!
