Although one may not totally agree with or understand some of the points the author makes, or even like the totality of the character himself, it has the potential to change the way you think about yourself, life and spirituality irreversably so. But you must be prepared for the truth. And to make use of such content, you must be prepared to cast away everything you think you know and hold dear.
A truly exceptional and outstanding book that highlights the first step and the struggle, very very well, toward non-dualistic awareness and truth realisation. It is inspiring in a way that has never been seen before in spiritual writings.

The book is aimed at blowing holes in any mystical 'all is love and bliss' models of enlightenment, with repeated emphasis on deconstructing all beliefs, whether they are 'spiritual' or otherwise - as these are all means by which the ego seeks identity. There are very few tips or techniques included for challenging cherished beliefs, other than truth work and writing down what you KNOW you know 'I am...', but perhaps it will put an end to any growing library of spiritual literature.....
"If I were to reduce this book and my teachings to their essence, I would say it all comes down to nothing more than this: Think for yourself and figure out what's true. That's it. Ask yourself what's true until you know. Everything else in this book, everything else I have to say on the subject, turns on that centre.
That's the note I'd like to end on. It's your show. It's your universe. There's no one else here, just you, and nothing is being withheld. you are completely on your own, and everything is available for direct knowing. No one else has anything you need.Read more ›
Spiritual Enlightenment: The Damnedest Thing is the first in the series and announced the arrival of a major new voice in modern spirituality. Jed McKenna pulls no punches, but tells it like it is. It's probably not to everybody's liking, in fact some people might find his approach a bit upsetting, as he obviously seems more interested in truth than making you feel good. The second book is called Spiritually Incorrect Enlightenment and is every bit as good as the first one. It contains a very interesting and enlightening in-depth discussion about Herman Melville's book Moby Dick (Wordsworth Classics), as well as more of Jed's hilarious and outrageous experiences and profound insights. The third book, Spiritual Warfare, might well be the best of the three books, and is even more uncompromising and direct than the first two.
Jed McKenna speaks of enlightenment and spiritual awakening, and does so without sugar-coating it.Read more ›
