Despite the long time it took me to finish this book, I still recommend it. True to the book's title, the author asks how we can make the world anew through imaginative remaking, which leads (or may lead) to unfolding enlightenment. Again and again, Norman's writing climbs the peak and looks down, explaining what is seen from the Buddhist perspective in simple terms. At other times, the sheer impossibility of explaining the unexplainable becomes apparent as Norman relinquishes the hold words have on the world, suggesting that definitions begin to lose their power to describe. He then urges meditation. For Western readers (and by this I mean Christians, Muslims, and other non-Buddhists), the emphasis on meditation may seem a cop-out, but no less than, after reading scripture, to pray.

will definitely teach this at some point

very understandable, accessible ... many witty metaphors ... many surprising statemetns, cute paradoxes to break certain unexamined presumptions of the western world, the peculiar western culture
