Dutch author Marc Brookhuis has written several books on zen, mindfulness and Eastern philosophy. He works as a zenteacher in The Netherlands and gives many courses like Zen & Archery and Zen & Mindfulness.

Review:
“With the book “Zen and the art of quality” author Marc Brookhuis refers directly to the classic book of Robert Pirsig 'Zen and the art of the motorcycle maintenance'. This book from 1974 describes a trip by motorcycle though the United States, but it is in fact a philosophical search for the meaning of quality. Brookhuis’ approach is the same. He looks at the definition of quality through a Zen Buddhistic perspective and asks pertinent questions: What is quality? What would happen if you would subtract quality from the world as a calculation? What is our involvement and our responsibility in delivering quality and good care?

Zen and the art of quality” gives depth to a concept important in everybody’s life, which too often, under pressure of mercantile and economic principles, loses its true meaning."
((Kwinta - The information- and network platform of the Flemish Centre of Quality Care)
