Product description

Review

""Bad Dog!" is simply the best book on the wisdom of living I have seen in many years. Its honesty, insight, and pathos pull you into it the way good literature does. Indeed, it is very well written, which is unusual for the genre. I always say, take great care choosing the books to read, and I strongly recommend this one."--Thomas Moore, author of Care of the Soul and Dark Nights of the Soul

"Lin Jensen writes with a deep understanding of life, the land, and the human spirit. This memoir reads like something Steinbeck might have written had he been a Buddhist, and I can pay an author no higher compliment."--Christopher Moore, bestselling author of the novels Coyote Blue, Fluke and Lamb

"The tact and restraint in Jensen's writing match the keenness of observation and the rare beauty of expression, allowing the words to go deep."--Joanna Macy, author of World as Lover, World as Self

"An exquisite work of alarming lucidity."--Stephen Batchelor, author of Living with the Devil and Buddhism Without Beliefs

"Lin Jensen demonstrates, by sharing his own clarity, that seeing the world as it actually is means being fully alive."--Sylvia Boorstein, author of Funny, You Don't Look Buddhist

"Compellingly beautiful... a reading experience that is both gut-wrenching and inspiring."--Keith Kachtick, author of Hungry Ghost

"Beautifully and powerfully written, "Bad Dog!" is a hauntingly honest reminder to open our hearts to the whole truth and thereby fully appreciate the great matter of life and death."--Ellen Birx, co-author of Waking Up Together

"In spare yet vivid language, Lin Jensen shows us scenes from a life that I never could have imagined. The true stories found in this can't-put-it-down exploration of family love and pain often made me cry--the kind of crying it feels good to do. I can't get these compelling stories out of my mind."--Susan Moon, author of The Life and Letters of Tofu Roshi
