Comments and mentions from HN threads:

Ask HN: Books with a high signal to noise ratio?


tomp: (I listened to it as an audiobook). It changed the way I think and feel (or at least how I react to feelings).

Ask HN: Books on specific topics that have applied to many areas of your life?


wu-ikkyu: The book is a historical analysis of the culmination of zen buddhism from its roots in hindu, buddhist, and toaist philosophies. Watts presents a perspective on how to approach your everyday life (relationships, communication, work, play, boredom, stress, anxiety, happiness, sadness) that is contrary to how we're taught to live in the "western world".
