    The first third of the book is not very interesting It is about Buddhism and Zen in general I think there are better books about this topic But next part of the book is great It is about connection between Zen and software development The best part that should be set in stone is about Ten rules of a Zen programmer So I recommend to read this book backwards

    While the language is at times harder to read the book offers a view on how to integrate the practice of Buddhism well into programming job when once I thought they were two opposite world that could not mix I recommend this book for people who are serious in both Buddhist practice and their programming career

    An interesting read that I treated myself as a reminder and a personal anecdote It is written from the perspective of such anecdote as well in the sense that the author humbly does not assume to have all or any answers to your problems He used to be in a difficult place and this is what helped him Perhaps you will find it useful as wellThe overall structure is well thought out so that you can come without knowing anything about Zen or Buddhism and get a minimal introduction to some of their aspects Since the book does not aim to be a complete manual on Zen philosophy expect to go elsewhere afterwards to read up on the details if you want but at least the rest including the personal anecdote part will make senseThe language is a bit awkward at places but not in a way that was particularly distracting

    Book has a few good points that are spread on too many pages I hesitated between two and three stars

    This book was transformative for me it has influenced core aspects of my lifeIt creates a bridge between Software Development something you may be familiar with And Zen practice This bridge is full of wonderful analogies that are frankly enlightening I read it last year since then I've read books on the subject Recently I re read it and I feel that it has depths I haven't completely grasped yet I plan to read it once again in a yearI cannot recommend it enough as a gentle yet surprisingly deep introduction to Zen practice from the view of a Software Developer

    I really enjoyed the book since I could easily connect to many of the author's stories The author describes his way of implementing Zen in real life This makes the book uite personal so it is up to you what you will get out of it

    I was expecting about zen programming then zen for programmers but that's my fault The best thing about this book is author's personal and intimate confession and smart ideas found elsewhere It's inspiring and encouraging reading
