THE ACCIDENTAL BUDDHIST is the funny, provocative story of how Dinty Moore went looking for the faith he'd lost in what might seem the most unlikely of places: the ancient Eastern tradition of Buddhism. Moore demystifies and explains the contradictions and concepts of this most mystic-­seeming of religious traditions. This plain-­spoken, insightful look at the dharma in America will fascinate anyone curious about the wisdom of other cultures and other religions. "Sure of foot in complex terrain, and packing a blessedly down-­to-­earth sense of humor, Dinty Moore is the perfect scout for the new frontiers of American Buddhism.­"--­Rodger Kamenetz, author of THE JEW IN THE LOTUS and STALKING ELIJAH.

A skeptic by nature, a writer and teacher more at home with ballpoint pens than computer programs, Dinty W. Moore wanted to find out for himself if the much-­touted Internet and the electronic culture it has spawned is really going to be the Next Big Thing, or whether it's the emperor's new clothes. This is not a how-­to guide, a giddy net-­head's online magical mystery tour, or a binaries-­in-­the-­sky futurist treatise. Instead, this book tells it like it is about the Internet. Anyone who's asked, Who's there? What am I missing? and What is it all about? will find Moore's good-­natured skepticism a welcome break from the explosion of wide-­eyed techno-­hype raging all around us. "Moore is far and away the best pure writer of the 'Wired School.­' He's like the Stage Manager poking his head in around the set of 'Our Town.­' Funny that it took the arrival of this commonsensical outsider to finally put a real human face on the digital world.­"--­San Jose Mercury-­News.
