Comments to eBook Crazy Wisdom

This book is one of the wittiest, yet still serious books for the spiritual pilgrim. It operates on at least two levels. First, the humor is nonstop. Wes Nisker is a master of one liners and small puns. Second, if one reads with a bit more intentionality and stops to make connections with the figures and wisdom traditions represented here, there is some sacred depth to be plumbed as well: laughter IS theology in some circumstances. I highly recommend the book. I first stumbled across this gem many moons ago in its original incarnation. This latest version still meets a high standard.

Okay,I took that title from Gary Snyder's blurb on the back cover, but its apt.The author also refers to it as a kind of survival guide for our troubled times.In it, he blends quotes by everyone from The Buddha to Groucho Marx, Lily Tomlin to Gandhi,Kafka to William Burroughs and William Blake, "crazy" visionaries with wise and humorous perspective and ties them together in a fun and insightful way.This is a new edition of his original Crazy Wisdom which at the time I purchased several copies of and handed out to friends.Therapeutic fun

Well written, informative and inspiring. I have read other books by Wes Nisker. This one ties things together. I highly recommend it for anyone who is seriously looking for the meaning of life. There are some good suprises here.

Great collection of quotes and summaries of innovative thinkers, ancient and contemporary. Sublime use of four quintessential "Fools". Inspiring yet most importantly, embossed with humor on every page.

I have read this book myself so I knew it was an excellent gift for my sister. I would strongly recommend this book.

A great and easy to read book on Taoist thought.
Very good for those wanting to explore alternative philosophies to the traditional western ideals. Great use of a wide variety of sources from American thinkers to Buddhist monks to Islamic authors
