This was the first book I read by Alan Watts and now, after reading a number of his collected essays, I think it is one of his best. He had a quick wit and his insights into nonduality and consciousness were well beyond his time.

I first read this book in paperback in 1985. I've carried this copy in my backpack for years as a reference and reminder to keep things simple in my life. Alan Watts allows us to think past what preconcieived notions we have about ourselves in that we are simply a series of contrasts that is easily explainable. I remembered hearing his recorded lectures on NPR radio back when I was working the graveyard shift at a Santa Monica gas station--that was in 1976. So it was a grand delight have found a hard cover copy on Alibris to put on my bookshelf next to my dog-eared copy of the paperback. It is THE BOOK.
