That's funny, my 1999 edition opens with a 4 sentence Author's Note that ends with:

"..it should in no way be associated with that great body of factual information relating to orthodox Zen Buddhist practice. It's not very factual on motorcycles either."

Not sure if that was in the original?

Maybe that where i misremembered the quote from and assumed it was a reviewer.

the fact that he pointed it out himself makes me respect the author even more.

That's in my 1975 copy.
