Fantastic read. Alan Watts makes my head hurt as he toys with ideas that cross the boundaries of philosophy, religion, humanity, love and meaning. This is what books should do and for this reason it has to be 5 stars.

Watts has the remarkable gift of getting the reader to feel that what he is explaining is already known by the reader, but afterwards the way in which he does it cannot be remembered and copied. His mischievous use of puns is delightful. Required reading by anyone interested in semantics and philosophy.

Watts' style is simply inimitable. Listening to audio material as well, available from the internet, one is simply awed at the man's precision and clarity, and his ability to communicate this in such exquisite yet limpid prose.

Really helpful book. My fiance laughed at the title but when reading it, it makes a heck of a lot of sense. Really uncovering an important truth. Found it really humbling and inspiring.

Alan Watts was a genius. His way of looking at the world was truly unique and I'm very glad I stumbled upon him by chance online as his words have helped change my life for the better.

Good old Alan Watts. True, he may say the same thing over and over in his books, but he's always a pleasure to read. He breathes life and joy into the otherwise-overwhelming metanoia of realising a way of being that is undeniably divergent from maintstream western thought. Thought-provoking, profound and at times quite humourous, this book was a sound purchase. Plus it has a shiny bit on the cover, to attract magpies or to use as a signalling mirror.
