My guru repeatedly said that yoga would take us back to our original religion, rather than away from it, which is what happened when I discovered my family's Quaker roots. In contrast, Roth grew up in an atheist household in New Zealand and took up Zen Buddhism while working as a journalist in Japan. His experiences ultimately pointed him to embrace his own Jewish and Anglican origins, similar to my own encounters. Roth's descriptions of the many streams of Buddhism he met with is a revelation and often a critical counterpoint. His book is a simply told account of discovery, disillusionment, and rebirth.
