” With craziness as a context life finally makes sense…”
I REALLY liked this book. And the reason is simple: it’s crazy real life. It’s a saga, a journey into craziness, a frankenstein monster on steroids. Then, when you think it can’t get any more bizarre, you get the wisdom of the lesson, and it is like a mackerel on LSD smacking you right in the eyeball. Here’s the thing, all those books with the knuckleheaded newbie receiving lessons from the old master, they are like the Kung Fu TV series, all carefully scripted and polite. This book offers the craziness of real life as the context, and so the lessons become super brilliant, make real sense, and you finally start to understand what ancient wisdom really means. And this happens page after page, all through the book. The funny thing is that even the few typos enhance everything; it feels like Rod is talking to you, that you are right there with him. How often do you get a fun and great read that reaches right into your psyche and changes you? How often do you get somebody who really knows how to live life to actually talk to you?
