"Bring Me the Rhinoceros" is an unusual guide to happiness and a can opener for your thinking.

For fifteen hundred years, Zen koans have been passed down through generations of masters, usually in private encounters between teacher and student.

This book deftly retells fourteen traditional koans, which are partly paradoxical questions dangerous to your beliefs and partly treasure boxes of ancient wisdom.

Koans show that you don't have to impress people or change into an improved, more polished version of yourself.

Instead you can find happiness by unbuilding, unmaking, throwing overboard, and generally subverting unhappiness.

John Tarrant brings the heart of the koan tradition out into the open, reminding us that the old wisdom remains as vital as ever, a deep resource available to anyone in any place or time.
