The Dude And The Zen Master ($20), a New York Times bestseller comes courtesy of Oscar winning actor Jeff Bridges and Bernie Glassman, the renowned Zen leader and the author of Bearing Witness.

These dudes are "simple and unassuming and so good that, on account of them, God lets the world go on." His good buddy Jeff, however, sees it from a different perspective. He says that the great thing about the Dude is that he would rather "hug it out than slug it out." An extraordinary book.
