American Buddhist Perspective gives “An American Buddhist Life” 5 stars

Blogs Books Buddhism around the World Buddhism in Canada Education Sumeru Books Teachers

Justin Whitaker, of the blog American Buddhist Perspective recently reviewed Charles Prebish’s new book, “An American Buddhist Life: Memoirs of a Modern Dharma Pioneer” which was published by Sumeru last month. Here’s a brief quote…

“Subtitled ‘Memoirs of a Modern Dharma Pioneer,’ Charles Prebish’s latest book is a tour de force of American Buddhist studies. While I give it 5 of 5 stars, it won’t be a book for everyone. As memoirs go, it is excellent: comprehensive, revealing, honest, and straightforward. But unless you’re in one of the relatively small fields of American Buddhist Studies or Buddhist Ethics, Charles Prebish might be little more than a curiosity to you.

“But, if you’re like me, and immensely interested in both American (or Western more broadly) Buddhism and Buddhist Ethics, then this book is a must read. This book also brings us inside academia and Buddhist Studies like no other book out there.”
