    Hilarious!

    This oh-so-au courant political satire is VERY well -written. The author has the additional advantage of possessing a working knowledge of both Buddhism and American politics. It's hilarious and a bit frivolous, but you can devour it with good conscience -- sort of like an organic chocolate chip cookie. --catwak

    Funny and bitter novel

    Funny and bitter gets old after a while. A couple of words are misused and some others misspelled. But the Buddhist part feels real.

    Terrific read

    This is a delightful book to read; it's fun, and well-executed. It skewers our current American politics - admittedly a beckoning target - in a way that is true, hilarious, and oddly warm-hearted. The title character is learning the tenets of mindfulness to deal with his temper (he wants to wring the neck of his anger-management counselor) and actually develops wisdom as he wends his way through the serpentine twists of plot. Highly recommended.
