Overview

Five years ago, journalist and practicing Buddhist Woody Hochswender co-authored a book on Buddhism that focused on the teachings of Nichiren, a 13th-century Japanese monk who has become the spiritual teacher for more than 20 million Buddhists worldwide. That book, which is in its 10th printing and has sold more than 80,000 copies, was such a resounding success that Hochswender has written an insightful new work-at once a follow-up to the previous volume and a freestanding work of its own. A new breath of inspiration, The Buddha in Your Rearview Mirror speaks to the spiritual yearnings so many of us have amid the hustle and flux of contemporary life.

The book is a sophisticated but accessible introduction to Buddhism as well as an in-depth study of Buddhism in the Samurai period. Hochswender again focuses on the philosophy of Nichiren and applies its principles to everyday issues ranging from health to careers to family problems. The Buddha in Your Rearview Mirror is both cogent and compelling-informative history and inspiring self-help. Ideal for the novice or veteran Buddhist, the book will resonate with anyone interested in concrete methods for tapping into their own highest potential or enlightened self.

I've recently taken an interest in Nichiren Buddhism and this book was exactly what I was looking for. It explained how and why to practice Buddhism in an easy to understand way. This is a great book for beginners like myself. You won't be disappointed!

This is one I continually purchase, read many times over and then pass it along to another person!

This is an exceptional guidebook for those who know nothing about Nichiren Buddhism and also for those who have practiced this philosophy and way of life for years. It explains the concepts in ways that help the reader to gain insight in a very deep way. I found myself saying, "Yes, that's exactly it!" many times. However, every page was exciting, filled with information presented in a very compelling manner--informative, intelligent, inviting. Incredible writer. I couldn't put this book down. For a seasoned practitioner, this is a good review. All the material is correct and well-researched, but presented in a personal manner. As a teacher, I value the presentation of a definition or idea in new words......and the expanding or deepening of my present knowledge. This book does that for me.

The writer needs to get a real job instead of trying to make money off of a truly wonderful philosophy
