Zen Mind, Beginner's Mind, by Shunryu Suzuki

With the holidays just around the corner, what do you get for the Zennist in your life? More books of course. For those who haven't noticed, I've listed some good Zen books in the left column (scroll down) but I wanted to add this one, since it's one of my favorites. If you haven't read Zen Mind, Beginner's Mind, run to the library now (or click the link above and buy it). Shunryu Suzuki's warmth shines through on every page:

In one of the best and most succinct introductions to Zen practice, the important teacher Shunryu Suzuki discusses posture and breathing in meditation as well as selflessness, emptiness, and mindfulness.

Another great book for anyone interested in the roots of science in Buddhism and Taoism, check out 'The Tao of Physics' by Fritjof Capra.
