Buddhism is all about training the mind, and boot camp is an ideal training method for this generation's short attention span. The chapters in this small book can be read in any order, and are simple and easy to understand. Each story, inspirational quote, and teaching offers mindfulness-enhancing techniques that anyone can relate to. You don't need to be a Buddhist to find the Buddha's teachings motivational. As the Dalai Lama says, "Don't try to use what you learn from Buddhism to be a Buddhist; use it to be a better whatever-you-already-are." So whether it's Mother Teresa's acts of charity, Gandhi's perseverance, or your aunt Betty's calm demeanor, as long as you're motivated to be better today than you were yesterday, it doesn't matter who inspires you. Regardless of religion, geographical region, race, ethnicity, color, gender, sexual orientation, age, ability, flexibility, or vulnerability, if you do good you feel good, and if you do bad you feel bad. Buddhism isn't just about meditating. It's about rolling up your sleeves to relieve some of the suffering in the world. If you are ready to be a soldier of peace in the army of love, welcome to Buddhist Boot Camp!… (mere)

Timber Hawkeye starts by saying you can apply Buddhist principles to any life. Then quickly moves into the path to bliss is meditation, service and minimalism. I'm probably being unnecessarily harsh, but I actually thought I would learn something I could actually use in my rather ordinary, pedestrian life where I have commitments to other people. I was very disappointed to be subjected to unrealistic dogma. ( )

Here's the good news: it's short. AND, the pages are blank (!) ...
...of anything that can be remotely construed as substance.

Maybe reading this after watching Mystery Men last week wasn't a good idea. Timber Hawkeye's (I don't have the desire to find out if that's his real name...) blathering is full of such gems as: "The past will let go of you if you let go of the past." No sh!t. He says LOTS of that crap in this comedic effort. Broad assumptions. Laced with logical fallacies. Misquotes (dude...you could have at least checked that Einstein never said that bit about a fish climbing a tree!)

And pith. This would have pithed me off if I had taken it seriously after the first page. I pithy the fools who think this is more than twitter prattle.

Deserves one star, but I'm being kind this year. Plus he made me laugh.

Want to learn about Buddhism? Read a real book, not this. Now I need to read something to regain the IQ points I lost. ( )

"Maggot drop an give me 100 push-ups while contemplating pain!"

"While on this 20 mile hike leave behind your desires!"

"You maggots will live in the NOW!"

" I want you too look at all this white space and contemplate the $12.00 you paid for this book"

"Your desire for a book to open the path to enlightenment has trapped you in a consumer mode!" ( )
