We just got our copies at Portland Friends of the Dhamma over the weekend, I was able to grab one and lug it home. Good thing I have an SUV, the book took up almost as much space as my kid :)
Right now, it's like this...

I received my book a few days ago in the mail. What an absolutely amazing book! I thought that I had known all there is to know about this legendary monk and his teachings but I was wrong. This book is incredibly detailed in not only Laung Por's life and experiences but also the history of Buddhism in Thailand. I recommend everyone who enjoys Ajahn Chah's teachings to order a copy from Abhayagiri or download it to your E reader. I haven't been able to put it down. It is a treasure.

:namaste:
To study is to know the texts,
To practice is to know your defilements,
To attain the goal is to know and let go.

- Ajahn Lee Dhammadharo


With no struggling, no thinking,
the mind, still,
will see cause and effect
vanishing in the Void.
Attached to nothing, letting go:
Know that this is the way
to allay all stress.

Yep I'm about 100 pages or so in and can honestly say it's the most inspiring book I've ever read.

You will absolutely not be dissapointed. Everytime I think it's as good as it gets it gets even better!
