    " Can't go wrong with Alan Watts. Can't go right either. Opposites implied and all. "

    " This man abounds with theories on the historical meanderings of the roles of men and women and nature... and religion. It gets preachy, just to warn you. "

    " Watts describes this book as his personal favorite. I don't think so. Still pretty good though! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Rob Springer | 6/5/2012

    " This may have been the last Watts I read. If so, it was the one where he took Oneness to an extreme where good and evil seemed to meet. "

    " Tons of wisdom, and for a book written pre-1960's, it reads as if it was a live commentary on today. "

    " I could be strangled by scientific knowledge. This book describes truth, and the need to feel to know. This book gives me the courage to strive for life without inner conflict, but rest with the paradox that life wouldn't exist without contradictions. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Katalin Koda | 8/14/2011

    " One of my favorite authors, his writing is pure poetry; the abstract of the East captured by the English language, something that remains effortless in his writing, effortless as Zazen, something that is incredibly difficult. "

    " This book really did it for me...had me going for quite awhile. It still flavors any physics, evolution, or economics that I read.

    Follwed it up with Aikido and the Harmony of Nature and I'd say that was good choice. "
