Zen and the Art of Surfing
by Greg Gutierrez
About The Book:
Zen and the Art of Surfing is primarily a work of fiction. A collection of short stories that was originally a Master's Thesis at San Diego State University. Excerpts from the collection have been published in The Surfers Journal, Surfer Magazine, Surfing Magazine and Wave Action Magazine.
This book was enjoyable to read just for the pure fun of hanging on the beach watching the sun coming up, and the perfect waves breaking in the dawn. A kind of biography..., coming of age..., the adventures of..., and an inside look at the surfing community at large. This book is a work of fiction, but certainly one based on loads of experience and personal attachment to its subject. Anyone who likes to dabble their toes in the water will find something to experience and enjoy in this book. I give it FOUR STARS.
