Reviews

Mr. Bridges and Mr. Glassman are likable, and smart, and interesting...["The Dude and the Zen Master"] includes compelling discussions of Mr. Bridges s marriage, acting technique and close relationship with his father...you ll always be grateful for the hang. "The New York Times" ["The Dude and the Zen Master"] is an odd and wonderful little work that makes use of the transcendentally funny characters and language of [The Big Lebowski] as the starting point for a relaxed philosophical discussion about a wide variety of topics. "Los Angeles Times " [A] truly incredible book about two friends talking about the good life. Huffington Post Whether he knows it or not, The Dude s laissez-faire attitude has become a model for coping with life s complexities...[in] "The Dude and the Zen Master," one gets the impression he or she is eavesdropping on an intimate conversation...It s more than chicken soup for the soul, [it s] cacciatore for the spirit, a winner s guide to optimal living a manual on how to Dude-ify oneself and just abide, man. Examiner.com (Cleveland) "The Dude and the Zen Master" is an exercise in likeability....[Bridges] is in rare form here....To know the Dude (and, by extension, Bridges own meditational endgame) is to love him. The Hairpin [A] good conversation between good friends...One of the unexpected treats of "The Dude and the Zen Master" is the insights into who Jeff Bridges is behind the Dude persona...touching remembrances of his parents, his reflections on life as a devoted family man, and his behind-the-scenes stories of movies he s worked on [and] profound little Zen observations and insights sprinkled throughout the book. "The Dudespaper" "The Dude and the Zen Master" doesn t read like a traditional book at all but rather riffs like a jam session....you ll feel as though you yourself sat in on the sessions with the dude behind the Dude in The Big Lebowski and Buddhist buddy, Bernie....And what s so cool is that the two of them manage to address many of life s profundities relationships, politics, working, aging, living, dying in this very funny and readable jam session. "Rock Cellar Magazine" "The Dude and the Zen Master" [is] a wonderful book of conversations...about acting and Zen and the long, fond relationship between these men. Sheila Heti, "Financial Times""
