The unconventional journey from rebellious punk to Buddhist teacher, written by the son of bestselling author Stephen Levine.

As with many self-destructive kids, Noah Levine's search for meaning led him first to punk rock, drugs, drinking, and dissatisfaction. Having clearly seen the uselessness of drugs and violence, Levine looked for positive ways to channel his rebellion against what he saw as the lies of society. Fueled by his anger at so much injustice and suffering, Levine now uses that energy and the practice of Buddhism to awaken his natural wisdom and compassion.

While Levine eventually comes to embrace the same spiritual tradition as his father, he finds his most authentic expression in connecting the seemingly opposed worlds of punk and Buddhism. As Noah Levine delved deeper into Buddhism, he chose not to reject the punk scene, instead integrating the two worlds as a catalyst for transformation. This provocative report moves from anger, rebellion, and self-destruction, to health, service to others, and genuine spiritual growth.

"This book is a great success story that shows that violence, negativity and self-destruction don't accomplish anything." Mike Ness, lead singer of Social Distortion.
