    This Book Changed My Life!

    This is one of the most amazing books ever. It is more than a book. It is a journey, down the yellow brick road. If you have even the least bit of interest in Oz, this book will have you revolutionize your life, by relating the movie to Zen principles. In practice, you can become self-actualized.

    A jouney worth taking

    The Zen of Oz is a thoughtful, spiritual journey into the American movie classic, The Wizard of Oz. Knowing very little about Zen, I thought that the subject matter would be a metaphoric stretch. But Mr. Green continued to intrigue me with his relevant and meaninful observations page, after page, after page. I highly recommend this book for people who ponder, or people who wander. This book will allow you to do both down the yellow brick road.
