Great teacher for sure, maybe not such a good family man.
The early background in Japan was fascinating.
Temple Zen as a family 'father to son' business.
Chadwick interviewed lots of people but the book really comes 'alive' after Chadwick joins the Zen centre and reports events through his own eyes.
First class, highly recommended.
However this would not stop me buying this book. You come to love a great personality. Every time I put the book down I had a smile on my face. It is also a great account of the times Suzuki lived in, particularly the Second World War in Japan. An intriguing Man not failed at all by his biographer who gets across the motivations and flaws of Suzuki very well indeed.
