I read this over summer 2011, and it served as both a guide, and an interesting narrative, about a life of someone trying to understand themselves, Zen, and the actions of others.

"Read for the know-how and wisdom to build a better world. And read for the facts. To heal the conflicts that are tearing our nation apart."
