Zen in the Art of Archery- Eugen Herrigel

This book is a personal account of the author´s experience learning the Art of Archerry in Japan. Since the author is a westerner with no previous archery experience, the reader will be placed exactly where the profound teachings of Zen shock the foundations of our interventionist, highly mechanical approach to action. It was recommended by a professional pianist, as it has become a word-of-mouth reference amongst artists, but it will be truly rewarding to anyone concerned with any kraft. Philosophical and practical at the same time.
