Back at the dawn of time when comedy consisted of camp stereotypes and 'my wife's so fat' jokes, Arnold Brown, Alexei Sayle, Ben Elton, and others were busy creating an alternative brand of comedy that has survived to this day.

Arnold Brown commenced performing at age 42, and has influenced a generation of comics with his dry, abstract observations. Very funny man. Very funny album. Download and start listening now!

Listener Opinions

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Ramesh | 2/19/2014

    " Read this about 15years ago, this book inspired me to read more, learn more, become more...do more. Its all about humanity and the road map to life, but its all explained in simple mathematical way... Mind blowing. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Colleen | 2/16/2014

    " I'm already in love with it. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Anne | 2/11/2014

    " My first philosophy book. It does get you thinking and the ending really puts things into perspective. No pun intended! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jim George | 2/8/2014

    " Another great book for giving you hope, a rock to hold onto in the middle of the stream in the raging waters of the river of life. Simple, with the ability to still challenge your faith. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Melanie | 2/3/2014

    " Written in the 70s, a book deconstructing scientific materialism. Only about 150 pages, but dense with great ideas. Not for the faint of heart but a great philosophical read. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Beth Barnett | 1/2/2014

    " Sort of spiritual and environmental in nature, but palatable. I enjoyed this, and I think it was because it was from a very liberal and open-minded/intellectual Christian perspective, not dogmatic. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Robert Boody | 11/25/2013

    " this dude had some whack logic going on. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Monta | 10/26/2013

    " Wow. Loved it! Decided to stop short of the "amazing" 5 stars. Really a great philosophy book about how to look at one's self. Definitely gave me a lot to think about in how I may be perceived by others. I'm not necessarily liking what I think others may see! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Geoffrey | 10/19/2013

    " Another book I read in my early twenties. Maybe it's even worth five stars. The missing star is due to the intervening years. I add it because I recently came across a copy and was reminded what an impact it had on me. I'd love to get feedback from anyone who has read it recently. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Joe Raimondo | 10/19/2013

    " The source of my favorite quote: "The modern world tends to be skeptical about everything that makes demands on man's higher faculties. But it is not at all skeptical about skepticism, which demands hardly anything." "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Lindsey | 5/12/2013

    " Schumacher is my hero. So prescient. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Michael Cheek | 4/6/2012

    " n Baie oulike boek omtrent wetenskap en geloof. Die skrywer is egter 'n ongelowige. Die eerste helfte van die boek is baie goed; dan raak hy verlore in die mystisisme en New Age dwaalleer. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Brian Olson | 8/8/2011

    " Awesome book. Very interesting philosophical approach to life: the four levels of being: matter, life, consciousness, self-awareness. Very readable and highly recommended. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Joan | 10/13/2010

    " Read it twice, and will read again. Very interesting concepts. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Natasha | 2/25/2009

    " If any book answers the question "What is the meaning of life," it is surely this one! Schumacher lays before the reader the array of tools at his disposal to make sense of the mind-boggling problems life throws at us. A must-read for anyone interested in seeking the "Higher Levels." "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sherri | 10/19/2008

    " Worth the read - might seem outdated - but I don't think so! "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Edwin | 7/16/2008

    " You can shoot a million holes in each argument made on each page. I thought it would be interesting but I gave up after a dozen or so arguments that were just falling out of the air without any proof or whatever. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Rutger | 12/25/2007

    " Schumacher argues for understanding man as a unique being gifted with reason. Not very convincing (he does not face cognitive neuroscience's attempt to explain reason), nevertheless refreshing. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Uppie | 9/8/2007

    " A philosopher and humanitarian's critique of modern science. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Michael | 1/22/2007

    " This book helped me put into words feelings I'd already had about humanity & modern life that I wouldn't have been able to articulate clearly before. Highly recommended. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Helen | 9/14/2006

    " I could read this book over and over. "
