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.

Would you listen to You're It! again? Why?

This Alan Watts collection is so great that I've listened to it three times, unlike any other audio book I have. Sure, he tells the same joke or story more than once and his fawning description of the Japanese tea ceremony was dull but Alan more than makes up for that with brilliant content delivered with incredible wit.

What made the experience of listening to Getting to Yes the most enjoyable?

This book provides a very interesting and perhaps correct insight into why people make the choices they do and the "why" that should be at the heart of successful organizations.
