provocative,funny journey through the Crazy Wisdom landscape

Romp with Wes through the world of clowns, jesters and fools while you unearth the paradox that is present in our daily lives.

For those who enjoy seeing esoteric views of our world and enjoy humourous examinations of our many follies, pick up your pack and join the archetypes as you travel down the road.

Thouroughly entertaining and easy reading

Crazy Wisdom offers an entertaining, easily digested, and concise view of some of the prominant philosophies and religions today. I thouroughly enjoyed it for its simplicity, insightfulness, respect, and comedy. I recommend this book to everybody. Close-minded people need not apply.

If it makes sense, then its not philosophy.

Our world is plagued by rigid, intolerant religions, dogmatic "truths" and people who take themselves and their ideas too seriously. Then along comes Wes Nisker with his humble little paperback that can hold its own next to The Bible on the bookshelf. This book explores everything that is central to true enlightenment: the ridiculous, the blasphemous, the paradoxal, the rebellious, the foolish. This book embraces all that society rejects, and in doing so, unearths the very missing link to our spiritual evolution. There's no reason to fear. Journey with Wes and his troop of clowns, poets, mystics, thinkers and fools as they explore the philosopies of East and West with a grain of salt the size of a boulder. Along the way he points out that the world's greatest and most revered thinkers, prophets, poets, scientists, artists and activists were all considered "crazy" in their day and viewed as outlaws and criminals by their contemperaries. Partake in this humourous and easy to read exploration of the absurb side of philosophy, and see that the various spiritual and philosophical traditions of the world have more in common than they'd probably like to admit to each other.

truly tops ! funny and, enlightening !

i keep going back and quickly reviewing ... it, especially touched me, because my major in college was philosophy and psychology, western brand. then, later in life, i happened to become acquainted with easturnslants, and that opened my vistas, and, interest in the issues, immeasureabley ! the author, has put a most valuable book on the market ! too, bad, it isn't suggested reading for students of all ages, everywhere ! of course, those who are leftbrained restricted, would probably have no interest , but i feel it's about time we grow, from the tyranny of the left, encompass, the rightbrain, and, thence, onto , wh o, k n o ws, w h ere ! tom mckenna,
