The Shōbōgenzō (The Treasury of the True Dharma Eye) is a revered eight-hundred-year-old Zen Buddhism classic written by the Japanese monk Eihei Dōgen. Despite the timeless wisdom of his teachings, many consider the book difficult to understand and daunting to read. In Don’t Be a Jerk, Zen priest and bestselling author Brad Warner, through accessible paraphrasing and incisive commentary, applies Dōgen’s teachings to modern times. While entertaining and sometimes irreverent, Warner is also an astute scholar who sees in Dōgen very modern psychological concepts, as well as insights on such topics as feminism and reincarnation. Warner even shows that Dōgen offered a “Middle Way” in the currently raging debate between science and religion. For curious readers worried that Dōgen’s teachings are too philosophically opaque, Don’t Be a Jerk is hilarious, understandable, and wise.

Im 30 and single. In the fifteen years Ive been dating, I have noticed a blatant and unfortunate pattern forming. Jerks are drawn to me at an alarming rate, as if being pulled by some invisible, powerful magnet. And I am drawn to them. I frequently find myself in the company of idiotic, selfish, moronic, immature, cheap, cheating, lying, perverted douchebags. And while they may have a few discerning, semi-endearing, semi-reedeming qualities about them, they all have one crucial and critical characteristic in common: they are Jerks. And almost exclusively, I date them. Jerk Magnet is about my experiences going out with less than desirable men. There is Rob, the irrational, jealous boyfriend, Ricky, the non-commital guy and Kyle, the cheapskate loser. Even Serena is included in the group, my good friend who slept with the guy I was dating. From Los Angeles to Chicago, working many different jobs, from a Primetime Casting Assistant at a major television network to being a waitress at a Hooters-esque bar, its no secret I struck out big-time in love. But with the help of my best friends, Erin and Natasha, fellow members of the Jerk Magnets Anonymous Club, I met undeniably crazy characters, formed irreplaceable relationships, was taught to face every situation with grace, humility and humor...and most importantly, learned to laugh at myself and just (barely) survive the world of dating jerks.
