Hi Kim, nice book, i'm reading it with pleasure.

Have you ever read "Zen Guitar" by Philip Toshio Sudo?

Kim. I respect your passion for music and spirituality and see a straight connection between those two myself. BUT...

Most of the text in this book is in quotes, it even starts with a quote. What part of the book is your actual input (if you exclude your personal history and preface)? Is it more of a summary of spiritual ideas than an actual book? And why is Steve Vai included? You could have easily done this same summary without Steve´s name on it.

I think the text you released is your personal tribute to Steve Vai and his role as an catalyst in your personal spiritual growth. That is something I can respect but why want to make money with it (even if the money is very little)? That feels a bit cheap.

Hope you enjoyed the shows in Finland!
