"When Eugen Herrigel died in 1955 he had published only one book, but it was a classic of its kind, Zen in the Art of Archery. He also left voluminous notes describing his six years of training under a Japanese Zen Master. These, edited and revised by Alan Watts and others, form The Method of Zen… even surpassing Herrigel’s earlier work."
— San Francisco Sunday Chronicle
"A more charmingly written, informative and important primer on any subject, let alone one as obscure as Zen, is hard to come by."
— Faubion Bowers, The New York Times Book Review
