    Having read this and several other works by Watts while still in high school, I am unsure of a proper rating At the time he was very influential, but then I knew so little and was so very unhappy.Mother introduced me to Watts and, thus, Eastern philosophies Actually, they were covered a bit in Freshman Civilization class taught by Kelly Fox and that was intriguing, but Watts was the fi

    What a powerful little book Watts has a gift for explaining Eastern thought and metaphysics to a western audience Some of the statements in this book will change the way you look at the world in an instant The day I finished reading this I spent two hours wandering around Seattle staring at trees and buildings and every...

    This is one of those books that goes deep into the essence of the PERSONAL EGO The way we look at the world and why we look at it with squinting eyes This book literally opened up my mind to some new thoughts and at solidified some of my own ideas that I had been dwelling on for years.Its funny at times But, Read it with no distractions around Its only enjoyable if you can literally digest wha

    Wow, what do I say about this book I read this based on the numerous, quite intelligent, quotes that can be found on the Internet attributed to Mr Watts Reading this book was a very different experience though To be sure, there are some grains of wisdom, but they are to be found among tons of chaff With the flowing and unfocused nature of this book I could only picture a stoned hippy unloading a s

    Watts says humans are connected to everything around us so that we and the universe are one The goal of Eastern thought is to tap into that oceanic feeling and love and harmony will result This perspective he contrasts with Western thought, which is atomistic and ego based, leading to competition, domination and conflict Watts has an interesting writing style Points and themes fade in and out, like a

    Alan Watts does a fine job of breaking through the narcissistic wall that many of us build around ourselves, as if we have a superior, godlike ability to access a vantage point that sees a world around us, apart from us, rather than us of it, fully immersed within the Whole Everything of All Things.Sure, it is totally the book you love as a freshman college student, trying to disavow your WASPy upbringing

    I certainly don t agree with him on everything, but this book is life changing I mostly took off a s tar because he tends to be hypocritical at times he criticizes superiority complexes but clearly has one, and talks about politics in ways he criticizes people for doing so.

    I read this book while on a kayaking trip with my older brother on Kachemak Bay, Alaska and I have never, literally, been exactly the same It pulls the veil back, as it were You can read it over and over, but I think the best one is the first time through It made my mind race with the possibilities that it opened up, created some serious dialogue with my brother, and it made the perfect Christmas present, that ye

    The core of his argument is that Western society is plagued with an overabundance of ego Which is not to say that we are overly full of ourselves OK, that is kind of what it says , but that our confusion, frustration with life, and overall isolation from one another stems from this cultural meme that the individual exists wholly separate from everything else.Watts finds the Hindu Buddhist notion of a ground of being

    What if there were One Book, which gave the low down on all the Big Questions Who am I Why am I here Where did I come from What is the Universe How was it created No, I m not talking about the Bible That doesn t really answer those questions in a way that is palatable to the modern, scientific, skeptical thinker.Alan Watts wondered what such a book would be like, and in so doing, he ends up writing it At least I think he
