“from the back cover:
In Zen in the Art of Archery, Professor Herrigal came close to achieving the impossible by explaining the mystery of Zen in words.  This little book, which describes his course in archery under a Japanese Zen Master and his deep involvement in the philosophy, is now considered a classic in Zen literature.
In the present book, Professor Herrigel adds further illuminating insights into the paradox of Zen.  The Method of Zen consists of material drawn from the voluminous papers found after his death in 1955.  These notes range over a wide field and are distinguished by great precision in the description of the techniques used in Zen training.  Like his previous work, the present book is a valuable and indispensable key to the understanding of Zen, the doctrine which is increasingly commanding the interest of the entire Western world.”
