Review:

Shhh. Quiet. I'm meditating on my computer. You can too. In Zen Computer, Philip Toshio Sudo takes the age-old tradition of meditating on objects from everyday life and upgrades it for the cyberworker. For many people, what is more everyday than a computer? From boot to shutdown, Sudo goes inside the computer and out, utilizing every nuance of computer work as an occasion for meditation. If you feel you're too caught up in the hectic life of the Information Age to do any serious contemplative work, fret no more. Breathe. Ten times. Following the number keys from 1 to 0. At the "%" sign, ask yourself if you're giving 100%. At the "&" symbol, dwell on all things that link us. From economic tool to spiritual tool, Sudo transforms the computer into a constant aid for mindful living. After reading Zen Computer, you'll never look at that plastic box the same way again. --Brian Bruya
