i loved this book. i couldn't put it down. as a person who meditates and is following the path of recovery, i could relate to the spiritual journey that noah levine describes in his book. noah's writing style holds your interest... it's like he's having a natural conversation with the reader, not trying to impress anyone or be anyone other than himself. if you're interested in the dharma, in understanding the rebellious side of alternative culture, or just curious about one man's amazing success story out of pain in darkness, i highly recommend this book. i'm grateful noah wrote it.
I attended local reading and tho no Punk was immediate convert. Inspring to see one of our generation show the way. It's hard to believe Noah has come through so much, so thoroughly--he comes off as softest, warmest person you can imagine... he's been through--and come out of--well DHARMA PUNX is a testament to the power of meditation to present the possibility of true freedom to anyone, at anytime. The only way this book could be better is if it were bigger. Harry Potter gets 870 pages? Bring it on, Noah!
