Review: I was introduced to the teachings of wabi sabi by a photographer friend through the writing of Leonard Koren. I owe Amazon a debt since they email out book lists of similar writings or content in case one might be interested... and here was Andrew Juniper's wonderful book. It is informative, sympathetic ('sympathetique'), articulate, sensitive, committed; above all, both the content and Juniper's writing manifest that clarity, functionality, and value of simplicity that lies at the heart of wabi sabi teaching. I have studied Buddhism and Taoism for some years and find within the teachings not only life 'guidance' but a source of nourishment for all of my endeavours, my photography included. Thank you Andrew Juniper! and potential readers - I recommend you to explore this book, and the wabi sabi teachings.

Review: Starts off okay but seems to drift off into repetitive tangents. Not sure about some of the Statements allegedly representative of the Buddhist view and certainly do not equate Buddhism to nihilism, it is after all the middle way. Life story of Ikkyu was almost ad verbatim from John Stevens book 'three zen masters'. Overall it could have been a pamphlet rather than a book and is priced appropriately (99p).

    Description: Be the best imperfect person you can be! Wabi Sabi is the Japanese Zen philosophy that all things are imperfect, unfinished and impermanent. It is a fresh way of seeing and moving through the world when our lives, literally and figuratively, feel cluttered. This book shows us how to apply this concept in the context of daily life and offers ideas on how to see it, embrace it and incorporate it into everyday thoughts, objects and situations. In a simple and accessible style, Wabi Sabi: The Wisdom in Imperfection shows you how embracing imperfections and impermanence frees you to become a better person, by reevaluating what better means | ??what really matters and what you truly want. A few simple challenges and exercises encourage you to get creative | ??such as a Wabi Sabi diary, a haiku exercise and a make art challenge | ??plus some tips on minimizing and decluttering (mentally and physically) for a simpler life. It allows you to mindfully make space in your head, home and with your time. In the foreword, Hector Garcia | ?? the bestselling author of Ikigai: The Japanese Secret to a Long and Happy Life | ??introduces readers to the Wabi Sabi aesthetic and shares his personal Wabi Sabi journey: from being asked about it on live TV fifteen years ago (before he knew what it was) to today, when it permeates every aspect of his life.
