Reviews

"Jeff Eisenberg has written a down-to-earth, informative investigation of the converging values and practices of martial arts training and the Buddhist path. His insights and reflections are honest and easy to follow, elucidating a wide variety of spiritual insights. You'll enjoy these reflections; they may even point you towards black belt enlightenment." * Josh Korda, Buddhist writer for Lion's Roar, Tricycle, and Wisdom Publications *
"Mr. Eisenberg has had bad experiences. He's been led astray by teachers, seen disgusting martial-arts snake oil sold as legitimate self-defense, and watched Buddhist leaders acting badly, practicing the opposite of what they preach. He doesn't call anyone out by name, but he writes extensively of the misdeeds and charlatanism he's witnessed over the years." * Brent R Oliver, The Tattooed Buddha *
"Fighting Buddha: A Story of Martial Arts, Buddhism, Kicking Ass and Saving It is Jeff Eisenberg's personal memoir and details his forty year journey in martial arts and meditation training, as well as some 25 years of Buddhist practice. Using autobiographical anecdotes, along with martial art fighting strategies, Buddhist folk stories, and koan and sutra teachings, Eisenberg explores both the benefits and detriments of each practice, as well as how they complement each other as a singular practice. An inherently fascinating, impressively informative, exceptionally well written, organized and presented read from beginning to end." * Midwest Book Review *
