Please try again later. In "the Book", Alan Watts, rambles through endless snippets of ideas, thoughts and occasional facts that he has come upon in his life.
To give him his due, he has read widely and so has an admirable bag of these snippets. But he then rambles on - now and then starting with one of these snippets and beginning to develop some thought from it but then quickly dropping this process and jumping to a new snippet and starting all over again. The entire book is just a long collection of these rambles. If you like to hear someone ramble on with no direction but presenting you with a lot of interesting observations, then this book is made for you.

If, instead, you wish to learn something of the vast Universe we live in and our place in this Universe, look elsewhere. It's amazing that so many gave this book 4 and 5 stars - absolutely amazing! I'm going to keep this as short and sweet as possible, because I simply did not care for and do not recommend this book. Having read numerous books both during and after college on many different religions and life philosophies, this is possibly the worst of any "Religion and Philosophy" book I have ever read.
I give it 1 out of 5 stars simply because I will admit that here and there Watts makes a generally "good" point; however, these were few and far between and therefore simply not enough to redeem the quality of "The Book" as a whole. First of all, I read this book twice, back-to-back, in hopes that maybe I was just missing something, but in the end, I can only conclude that it reads like some sort of drug-induced high-and-mighty take on how much better it is to live as if you are everything and everything is you. What frustrated me the most is that Watts started off by basically saying how all religions not just Christianity or Judaism, but ALL religions are bad..
Even more annoying is the fact that after a few pages of gushing about Vedanta, Watts moves on to other things and barely ever mentions it again throughout the rest of the book, leaving me wondering why he brought it up in the first place. This is not the only time Watts contradicted himself in his diatribe on why everything we have ever been told is awful and wrong--for instance, he makes a big long statement about a rainbow only appearing when there is a "certain triangular relationship between three components: If all three are present, and if the angular relationship between them is correct, then, and then only, will there be the phenomenon 'rainbow'.
The thing is, I could even overlook this whole passage, except that later on in "The Book", Watts makes the statement, "So--there has been a flash, a flash of consciousness or a flash of galaxies.
