The intent is to drive you OUT OF YOUR MIND

If you’ve listened to books by Alan Watts before, how does this one compare?

Alan is a great orator and I want to hear his words direct from the source. Unfortunately he does not have a significant number of recordings available here on Audible, at least not ones of any significant length. This particular one was very good, but it did require me to listen to short sections over an extended period, versus longer sessions of a few hours. I do plan to go back and listen again in between other books and lectures. There is a TON of good stuff here and each listen goes to another level.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

NO ... that would have truly driven me out of my mind in a bad way. Alan is a master of Zen practice, particularly keen in his ability to ask open ended questions that really don't warrant an answer. That process is truly designed to bring you outside of the box, outside of your mind and INTO your heart, intuition, creative and authentic self. However, listening to 14+ hours of Alan Watts in one sitting would not be a healthy endeavor.

Any additional comments?

If you enjoy Mr. Watts, consider checking out Robert Bly, Joseph Campbell and Wayne Dyer. Watts was inspiring to all of them.
