    I received this book for free in exchange for an honest review This book is an introduction to Buddhism similar to Brad Warner' Hardcore Zen series or The Dude and the Zen Master It doesn't go too deep it's chapters all seem to be a handful of pages long making it hard to go too deep into any topic but it has some very noveluseful exercises that make it worth keeping aroundI found Grosso's voice to be engaging warm and nonjudgmental Grosso's background as a recovering addict will definitely help some of his readers In the beginning his recovery anecdotes were a little tiring but after the first few chapters I sunk into the rhythm and found this book to be one of the most enjoyable books on Buddhism I readI found this book to be both enjoyable and revealatory and highly recommend it

    Fantastic I really related to this book and the author I loved the history of his spirituality and the many different viewpoints he took throughout his life Well done

    I didn't find myself connecting with the author's voice which is interesting because he is very self deprecating and irreverent two of my favorite ualities in a human being However there are some good nuggets of wisdom in there for those who like his style of writing

    Focused and refined Grosso's second book creates strong connection to spirituality into a concept that unites us all in Everything Mind More assured in his voice yet still fun and irreverent Grosso brings in his ideas of spirituality supported a vast group of some of the best spiritualists and some people less spiritual but he makes his case and shows us into his own spiritual practice in the process Grosso is a humble voice in the spiritual works and as he is able to admit not the most usual person with tattoos piercings and a past of addiction and low of the lows that would scare most but what he does offer is a way to see the world and find our true selves all at the same time

    Everything Mind God Spirit Being Isness by Chris Gross who recommends highly The Last Night of Earth Poems by Charles BukowskiTo learn about this independent spiritual teacher take a look at the site What I admire most about this book are the well crafted spiritual practicums The Centering Prayer from the work of Father Thomas Keating is one I am doing
