Shunryu Suzuki, author of the perennial classic Zen Mind, Beginner’s Mind, is lovingly remembered as one of the greatest spiritual teachers of the twentieth century—whose legacy is felt in every facet of American Zen. This monumental biography of Suzuki, written and read by his student David Chadwick, weaves together a rich tapestry of stories and memories of Suzuki’s students, family, and friends. In this updated and revised audiobook edition, Chadwick also offers rare excerpts from archived recordings of Suzuki’s teachings in the great Zen master's own voice.
