Pass the Jelly is hilarious and profound. It's full of mind-opening insights on living and rules-to-live-by wisdom that will stick with you long after you finish listening.
Gary Crowley has seen through many of the false ideas and assumptions we have about life, and he presents a simple, down-to-earth, yet seldom-considered wisdom on imroving our human condition.
As Gary takes us through one unusual day in his life, he shares insights on living along with comical, tender memories of his childhood. He shares the "Pass the Jelly Principle" (People do what they do. That’s what they do. And that's it), helping us to see that we're all bound by the intricate chain of cause and effect. Gary brings a fresh and distinctive voice to his narrative.
Simplicity combined with depth, laughter, with wisdom. Pass the Jelly is among those rare, deeply absorbing books that are able to successfully entertain and inspire. Engaging and fast-moving, this audiobook will make you laugh out loud and nod in agreement — and surprise you with its unexpected twists and turns!
Crowley's book is one big inside joke for people who have already invested in exploring enlightenment. For those who haven't, much of the humor will be missed. For those who have, parts of the book will be hilarious.
The cleverness is excellent. There are flaws. The envelope is occasionally pushed too much on irony and snarkiness. But there are good laughs, and some good teachings.

Marvelous. Just a great book on really showing you that "people do what they do". Laugh out loud funny.
I loved this book! Many of his stories reminded me of my childhood in the early 70s. The author is insightful and often very funny.

This is a monotone voice of a self indulgent fool.
