Book Review Friday: The Cow in the Parking Lot


     It was the title that caught my eye.  The Cow in the Parking Lot: A Zen Approach to Overcoming Anger, who could resist a title like that?
     Leonard Scheff was a trial lawyer who used anger in the courtroom on a regular basis.  Until he found a better way.  He attended some Buddhist retreats and learned to control his anger and found that it made him a happier person and even a more effective trial lawyer.  Co-written by Susan Edmiston, this book is Scheff's simple, effective take on using the principles of mindfulness to stop getting angry and start learning to deal with angry people.  A great little book full of helpful insights.  Funny, approachable, and easy to read.
