watts at his best!

Alan Watts is insightful, intense and entertaining. He cuts through the tradition of zen and other mystical traditions and brings out the essence.

Eastern thought with a Western accent.

Alan Watts is a spiritual entertainer. If you are not enlightened and entertained by this audio book, I'm sure Audible can refund your misery.

A raconteur on another dimension...

Alan Watts is always a delight. Wisdom and a few laughs to uplift the mind. Wish it was longer but such is life....
