The Dude relates :). This is an exceptional book.
This is an easy read, set out in conversational format between Jeff Bridges and Bernie Glassman. It is a really nice overview and discussion of Buddhism, mindfulness in life, and zen. It's so interesting to see the "real" Jeff Bridges - the man behind all of his characters - especially as to how he relates to his roles. Especially that of The Big Lebowski. So many people now conflate the two - the character of The Dude and Jeff Bridges. It's funny how not like The Dude he is!
Some good insights, but in the middle of all this enlightenment thought Bridges mentions his friend who is a hunter. Someone who kills for enjoyment. At that point I had to bail.
Jeff Bridges doesn't answer all his fan mail - he feels bad about it. Jeff Bridges once got into a disagreement with his hair stylist - he couldn't relax all weekend. I want to be Jeff Bridges.
Follows the disjointed conversation between Jeff Bridges and his friend, zen master, Bernie Glassman that revolves around Buddhism and somehow tries to weave the character, The Dude, in the film "The Big Lewbowski" into the mix.
I found it rather boring and found Bernie to be rather pretentious. I vote for skipping this book and reading something else about Zen Buddhism.
