A tough former Marine leads Buddhist basic training for the average Joe.
In Buddhism for Dudes, Gerry “Strib” Stribling, former Marine and all-around good guy, answers questions on life and living with a healthy dose of Buddhist wisdom for the regular guy. Strib takes a good look at who the Buddha was, meditation, karma, and more. With good humor and without sentimentalism (plus a sprinkling of hilarious cartoons), he explains these down-to-earth insights in everyday language. Showing how Buddhism boldly approaches life’s problems head on, unflinching and alert—like a soldier in a forward listening post in the dark of night—Strib emphasizes the Buddhist call to moral action for the good of oneself and others.
Gerry Stribling was born into a military family and served in the marine Corps in the 1960s and early 1970s. Since 1991 he has worked as a case manager for disabled, impoverished, homeless and criminal populations. He is the author of Confessions of a Buddhist Gunslinger. Stribling and his wife make their home in Louisville, Kentucky.
