Synopsis

Synopsis

Take a wild and rickety ride through the philosophies of the East and West to discover the madmen, dreamers, and unconventional wisdom seekers in the abridged, better-than-ever version of our best-selling cult classic. THE ESSENTIAL CRAZY WISDOM delivers the most significant, most lunatic, and most compelling insights of the ages. Scoop Nisker patches together the unorthodox teachings that have bubbled up through the words of such crazy visionaries as Rumi, Gautama the Buddha, Mark Twain, Lao Tzu, Albert Einstein, Mahatma Gandhi, Allen Ginsberg, and Lily Tomlin. Discover the common thread in these multiple perspectives and travel on this comedic course to enlightenment!‚Ä¢ Original edition sold over 40,000 copies.

"CRAZY WISDOM is deeply wise . . . wonderfully insightful and delightfully humorous. . . . "a good place to begin . . . its strength lies in its wonderful assemblage of life-changing quotes and stories."-Utne Reader"A dim sum feast of perceptive and amusing morsels. Nisker succeeds in fashioning an original pattern from motley patches of wisdom."-San Francisco Chronicle"The author . . . takes us on a wild and lively ride through Eastern and Western philosophy and spirituality. Along the way, there are plenty of humorous sidebar quotations. . . . Now more than ever, we need this brand of wisdom that opens us to wonder and hospitality."- Spirituality & Health
