I enjoy listening to Ram Dass tell stories. He is a wonderful storyteller, full of humor and amazing life experiences. However, many of his spiritual experiences involved the use of psychedelic drugs. Due to my background and history, I am predisposed to discount such experiences. For those of you who do not suffer from this hang-up, it's a very amusing read.
I would not recommend this book because it simply did not resonate with me. I am not very interested in metaphysics, and I am very uninterested in stories where drugs play a central theme. I do not believe in the transformative power of LSD, and I'm not very interested in that, anyway. I am much more interested in "ordinary" human experience and human relationships.
Ram Dass is a well-loved and venerable author and historian. If you love Ram Dass, you will love this book.
The book was entertaining, but I did feel that the discussion of more metaphysical matters were uninteresting.
A great book for people who love Ram Dass and his funny stories. I did not find it particularly illuminating, and I wish I had used my credit to purchase something else.
