Great listen!

The only thing I wish is hat it was longer. I defiantly recommend Alan Watts - You Are It or zen tales. Both are great books but either way Alan Watts never disappoints.

Too short to be relevant.

This is an excerpt from Alan Watts' seminar and in my opinion it is too short to be really useful. It speaks about duality had such but it's clipped off at the end abruptly and he makes reference to other parts of his lecture. I recommend buying the complete book or at least one of the excerpts that's more than an hour long. That said, it's still Alan Watts which means it's all good.

Ends mid-sentence

Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

In as much as I love Alan Watts & all of his works, this "book" ends in mid-sentence, HUGELY disappointed.

What did you like best about this story?

Alan Watts

Who would you have cast as narrator instead of the narrator?

I would have cast it exactly as it was.. but I would have FINISHED the speech.

Do you think Playing Hide and Seek needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

No, Alan Watts is dead.

Any additional comments?

Super disappointment
