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.

It's easy to be a jerk, because you don't have to think about much in order to be one. You don't have to think about other people and their feelings. You don't have to think about your parents, siblings or friends. You don't have to think about your teammates or coaches or teachers. You only have to think about yourself and what you want in that moment. You don't have to think about the past or the future or the consequences of your actions. To a jerk, there are no consequences. In this short book, author and father (of three boys and a girl) Craig Heimbuch shares some of the lessons he's learned about the things jerks do and men avoid.

Real-world insights - Love Your Mom - are combined with small behaviors - Make Your Bed - and advice rooted in sports - Control Your Hustle to create easy-to-digest, easy-to-learn lessons every boy needs to learn.
