more pointed and considerate than his lectures

narrator was very good. easy to understand and pronounced words in the conventional way. Refreshing, especially if you ve only listened to Watts speak extemporaneously

Very very deep...

This was my first book by Alan Watts and I loved it so much. He explains insecurity in a whole new level of understanding, and if you think you are capable to understand, go ahead and dive.
I will definetly reread this book. This book is in a Top 10 book, that I read for the whole time, and the best book on insecurity. I Highly recommend it.

PS: I write this addition afterward reading this book after 2 weeks, and I can say, that this book have something really deep inside. I can definetly say, that it changed a lot of aspects of my life, on different levels of conciousness. I never before done rewieing afterward, but this book trully and absolutly worth it.

Skipped it

I found it just didn't really feel like Alan Watts without having him be the narrator, the entertainment value just drops. Probably a good book, and nothing against the narrator, but it's just not as good

I was raised as a Christian, my parents, both mother and father are pasters. Wisdom is the structure for successful religions, in Christianity there is much to be found, yet I can't deny that I have heard life changing wisdom outside of my own beliefs. I am at the age now where I have began to question and keep an open mind, a game of, follow the wisdom. Anxiety disorder is something I continue to fight, win and lose on a daily basis, I see as well as who I am suppose to be in my religion contributes to that anxiousness I feel.
I would be a fool and have no since of wisdom in me if I where to deny this book, it speaks to me on a level I can't deny.

Alan said it best.

Lacking the enthusiasm that Alan would have if he told it. Alan had a magical way of expression that would have been magnificent to hear. Sean did make me laugh and smile. The depth of this book is not easy to present but I find it was worth the price
