Peter's blurbs for

Taigen Dan Leighton's Faces of Compassion: Classic Bodhisattva Archetypes and Their Modern Expression . Revised Edition. Formerly published as Bodhisattva Archetypes: Classic Buddhist Guides to Awakening and Their Modern Expression. - (Wisdom Publications,2003)

"Such a useful book. Mr. Leighton clarifies and explains aspects of Buddhism which are often mysterious to the uninformed. The concept of the Bodhisattva--one who postpones personal salvation to serve others--is the perfect antidote to today's spiritual materialism where "enlightened selfishness" has been enshrined as dogma for the greedy. This book is useful as a fine axe."

--Peter Coyote, actor and author of Sleeping Where I Fall

Thank You and OK!: an American Zen Failure in Japan

"The results of Chadwick's cultural collision with Japan are funny, insightful, revelatory and intriguing as hell. Don't let the fantastic cover fool you - this is a ripe book that goes to the core. The irreverence was also a friggin relief." -- Peter Coyote, actor and writer, in The Whole Earth Review
