City Dharma: Keeping Your Cool in the Chaos by Arthur Jeon



This gritty but compassionate book grew out of weekly "dharma conversations" that the author, a yoga instructor and a screenwriter, conducts in Santa Monica, California. In it, he touches on familiar vicissitudes of modern life, including road rage, noise, urban rudeness, status envy, the hassles and mental pitfalls of work, and "Sex and the City Dharma." This witty, wise, anecdote-filled examination of the perils and possibilities of pursuing the spiritual path is an entertaining, illuminating read.
