    • By Alan Watts

    Life is the ultimate game of hide and seek... and the good news is that you're it! With the combination of playful irreverence and penetrating insight that made him a legend in Western philosophy, Alan Watts investigates the surprisingly liberating concept of "the universe as play" found at the heart of Hinduism, Zen, and other wisdom traditions.

    Doc S. Hodges says: "A life changing look at ancient philosophy"
    "I love Alan Watts."

    If you could sum up You're It! in three words, what would they be?

    YOU ARE IT!!!


    What did you like best about this story?

    Not a story, but a series of lectures. Alan Watts offers a different point of view on reality; a holistic and liberating one. Alan Watts has opened my eyes to who I really am, which is ultimately the most valuable question of all questions. A master speaker, he is the best at helping us see that our way of looking at things is only a small and second hand vision of the ultimate Reality.


    What does the narrator bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Humor and a joy that is only found in the voice of a self-united man.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    The Truth unabridged.


    Any additional comments?

    I am that....you are that....you're it!

    Once the Sith order teemed with followers. But their rivalries divided them in endless battles for supremacy - until one dark lord at last united the Sith in the quest to enslave the galaxy and exterminate the Jedi. Yet it would fall to another, far more powerful than the entire Brotherhood of Darkness, to ultimately realize the full potential of the Sith, and wield the awesome power of the dark side as never before.

    Would you consider the audio edition of Path of Destruction to be better than the print version?

    I always thought I was a Star Wars geek because I saw all the movies multiple times. I had never read any of the books before or listened to one. After hearing this rendition of Darth Bane I can say that I am on board the Star Wars ship (pun not intended). It was awesome, like watching a long movie. So in a way I did like it better than reading a book. The sound effects and dialogue made it a more pleasing experience. I love the description of the Darkside and the book gave me a more in depth look at the Darkside vs. Lightside. It all seems like it has been borrowed from Taoism. I finished it in less than a week and am eagerly waiting for my next credit so I can hear and enjoy "The Rule of Two." A tremendously entertaining audio book!


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Darth Bane of course, you kind of root for him because he had such a bad life; however you realize the full extent of the evil he is becoming later and feel a guilty pleasure at being his fan.


    What about Jonathan Davis’s performance did you like?

    Well read and stays true to the dynamics of the narrative.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    I love the light saber fights and the music. The sound effects are awesome!
