I enjoyed this book as a travel experience, but would not have if I had been looking for spiritual guidance. Although I practice Buddhism, the Zen style is not for me. It is a little too masculine and focuses on punishment and regiment a lot more than my ideas of what the spirit are. This book is an example of that kind of thinking, but is also an entertaining and good read.
