Publisher's Summary

The term wabi sabi indicates impermanence, humility, asymmetry, and imperfection. Such underlying principles are diametrically opposed to those of their Western counterparts, whose beliefs are grounded in a Hellenic ethos that emphasizes longevity, grandeur, harmony, and beauty.

Wabi sabi is a core element of Japanese people's aesthetic sense and gentle nature. It's a belief system that guides the way they live life, though it's rarely talked about. The presence is everywhere and yet it can be seen nowhere. People intuitively know what the wabi sabi concept stands for, but few can express that. Wabi sabi is a mysterious enigma that aims to whisper important insight to those who are patient enough to explore and view it with an open mind.

The core values of wabi sabi:

  • Wabi sabi rewards genuineness.
  • Wabi sabi with a conscious choice is like a minimalism.
  • Simply put, wabi sabi lets you be yourself.
  • Embrace the incomplete beauty of being you.
  • The flaw is not hidden, but is revealed.

Wabi sabi is about appreciating the things we have, the people we love, and the opportunities we have in our lives.

In this book, we will discuss many more topics as accompaniments to the concept of wabi sabi. Enjoy!

Very flawed

I was skeptical from the onset. One cannot really create a two volume all inclusive manual on something that would take a lifetime to understand. But I think this is a good introduction to the topic.
My biggest problem is the narrator (if you can even call her that)
This person spent zero time learning how to pronounce the Japanese and Chinese words for the concepts presented. If it was one or two words I could overlook this but she butchers almost every single foreign word. As if that wasn't horrific enough she also murders English words. How this woman ever got a job reading is beyond me. Not only does she eviscerate the language but her cadence is very mechanical, almost like a AI voice reading text.
