I am very happy to inform you that Shunryu Suzuki's "Not Always So" has been published in Taipei, Taiwan, on Aug. 24, 2007. The book so far has been very well received by the huge Zen Buddhists population in Taiwan. As my recent knowledge, it also starts its selling in the bookstores in Hong Kong and Malaysia. For people who can read Chinese, they can go to this link to purchase the book.

Thank you for all your help on the process of translating this book (which I mentioned it in the translator's note). Wish all is well with you.

Your in the Dharma,
Translator, Yeachin Tsai
