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.”
