The Dude and the Zen Master by Jeff Bridges and Bernie Glassman

I'm a fan of The Big Lebowski and I've also been moving into the Zen/Buddhist direction so what better book to pick up than this one! Basically the book is Jeff and Bernie chatting with each other about Zen, living in the now, letting go, etc. "The Dude" comes in because they reference him a lot and the character was actually very Zen-like. The Zen Master portion is Bernie who is a Zen teacher. I really enjoyed the book because I felt I was a third person in their many conversations. It gets a little rambly and long at times, but it's exactly how it would be had I been sitting there with these two dudes myself!
