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. 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!

Review:

Irreverence, multiple perspectives, absurdity, cosmic unity, accepting circumstances, getting along--Crazy Wisdom, a cult classic on the wild side of philosophy is more than just a romp through titillating ideas. Wes Nisker actually hits on a string of similarities East and West that unites the visions of the poet, philosopher, artist, and guru. This book will take you on an enchanting and mind-expanding journey, liberally seasoned with quotations from Mark Twain, Chuang-tsu, various Zen masters, Albert Camus, Allen Ginsberg, Rumi, and other crazy fools gushing with wisdom.
