    They renamed the hebrew bible, "The Book"? What for?

    If you'd said right off "The Book by Alan Watts" it would have spared us the ambiguity.

    Here's my favorite review on the book. :bugeye: Not my cup of tea.

    The Book got rid of me

    "I read The Book in 1968. Afterwards I took some acid. What happened next can't be explained very well. The I that was me disappeared. What was left was clear and bright. Every face was my face. Every thing was what I was. It was so perfectly obvious. I felt I had awakened and just got clued into this great joke. I was always home and didn't know it. The glasses I was looking for were sitting on my nose! Peek a boo I see you! Nothing was out of place. Smog in the air, flowers blooming on the hill."

    this would be a shame, indeed.

    Sorry, I'm not into fiction books. :grumpy:

    Reminds me that I should finish up my reading of "I want to be a Mathematician" by Halmos. It made me laugh numerous times already.
