Zen and the Art of the Christmas Letter

We are finally there. In just a few weeks, the eagerly anticipated* book, “Zen and the Art of the Christmas Letter” will arrive. I am sending out a handful of copies to lucky individuals who will provide some last-minute feedback. In the meantime, here are a few comments from early reviewers.


“Zen and the Art of the Christmas Letter”

  • “This is a book that I wish I could have written. It captures the spirit of Christmas much better than I managed.” – Charles Dickens
  • “I envy the author’s command of the English language.” – Leo Tolstoy
  • “I know an epic when I see one, and this is certainly an epic.” – Homer
  • “Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipisicing elit, sed do eiusmod tempor incididunt ut labore et dolore magna aliqua.” – Random Typesetter
  • “A rambling, stream-of-consciousness work that is part memoir, part self-help manual. The author’s liberal use of footnotes may be a problem for some conservatives.” –  The Daily Republican
  • “For years, I have been asking Chuck, ‘how do you do it?’ I have always meant to ask ‘why do you do it?’  Now, for better or worse, I know why.” – Anonymous friend
  • “The book is so much better than the movie, or it would be if there was a movie.” – Found on twitter
  • “This is a super book.” – Diana Prince, an Amazonian Book Review
  • “Your relatives are already laughing at you. Make them get in line by laughing at yourself first.”  – Chuck Storla
  • “I found it to be a quick read and I’ve been moving kinda slow at the junction.” – Uncle Joe
  • “A good book to take on a long plane trip.” – Amelia E.
  • “What can I say? I loved it.” – Chuck’s Mother

My goal is to get the book out at least in ebook form (Kindle, iBook, etc.) by November as it is clearly seasonal. It will make book signings difficult but I am sure I can figure out something for those seeking a valuable signed first edition.



*Eagerly anticipated by me if no one else.

Cover art is subject to change so don’t fall in love with it.
