The book is easy to read and it gives great examples to better understand the concepts.I would recommend this book.

5-0 out of 5 stars Comprehensive and applicable
The book treats many cases and reaches high level of coverage; it is very helpful, that in practice one can find many similarities, since the cases are very realistic and explained in depth. My opinion is, that it is valuable because it is applicable.

Editorial Review

Sometimes a writer has to revisit the classics, and here we find that "gonzo journalism"--gutsy first-person accounts wherein the author is part of the story--didn't originate with Hunter S. Thompson or Tom Wolfe. Aldous Huxley took some mescaline and wrote about it some 10 or 12 years earlier than those others. The book he came up with is part bemused essay and part mystical treatise--"suchness" is everywhere to be found while under the influence. This is a good example of essay writing, journal keeping, and the value of controversy--always--in one's work. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Trippy Man
I'm not one for hardcore drug recreation, but I'm still very curious about it. I always ask people about their perceptions while under the influence and no one is able to articulate it. I think I have a pretty good understanding now when it comes to the effects of hallucenogenic drugs. I realize each individual has a different experience, but it takes an intellectual with an open mind to even begin to relate it to others.
5-0 out of 5 stars Huxley A Brain Change God!!!!!
Hmm Timothy Leary; Aldous Huxley; Robert Anton Wilson; David Icke; Terrance Mckenna; Aleister Crowley...
4-0 out of 5 stars Are you experienced?
Huxley's `experiment' in The Doors of Perception was a right of passage for many in my generation, and it's interesting to have such an intelligent analysis of the experience.He does waste a lot of words on something that is indescribable, but it seems to have been written in the first blush of excitement.And Huxley makes some very sound observations, as well, that have probably helped many people reconcile their own indescribable experiences.

5-0 out of 5 stars Great book
This is every bit the mind bender that the blurbs say it is.Wow!

4-0 out of 5 stars Taken in stride with Prometheus Rising
This book brings about few concepts that weren't already brought up in Prometheus Rising.Its a Wilson book, so of course its a mind-bender, but its also a repeat, in my opinion.Wilson seems to like to reiterate his many philosophies and theories throughout all of his book with little more added to the soup in each title.This one, in particular, contains group activities suitable for an open-minded (or close-minded I suppose) eclectic party.The setting in which he writes, to the group, reminds me of the feel of groups that meet in the Methodist Church on Monday nights in the basement.Its stuff anyone can do, anywhere in their life, at any time they choose.In a group, its very reinforcing and explorative and thats why I believe Wilson suggests it so heavily.I believe the material IS relevant, but just a tad bit repetitious from Prometheus Rising and points made in Schrodinger's Cat, etc.This is not a detractor because in a world that uses frequency and label control to catagorize our experiences for us, its not so bad to have someone else giving us these messages with both frequency and good content.Please enjoy irresponsibly.

4-0 out of 5 stars Typical Wilson :-)
This is like Prometheus Rising for a group setting. If you enjoy Wilson's writing then get the book, if you have a bunch of pals who will get together to do the exercises buy the book. I really have no gripe save one my wife has. You need a dictionary handy. He does not dumb down his works and unless you are a wiz with word meanings and history you will be looking stuff up. I like it though. ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars Not a fan, but still very good.
Yeah, so, I'm going to avoid the part where i think that a couple of important things in this book are stated too vaguely for a responsible philosopher, or where i mention that he seems to make one or two blatant errors of omission.I'm going to avoid these things for the dual reasons that a) they aren't really relevant to whether you should read this or not, and b) i allow for the possibility that i'm imagining these gaps because i haven't understood him, in which case i'm the stupid one.Given my presistent commitment to Legends of the Hidden Temple, that's a distinct possibility.5-0 out of 5 stars A Superb Collection of Articles...
Searle has collected a large and important variety of articles in this text, which spans several years of thinking on issues such as: the nature of consciousness, free will, the mind-body problem, rationality, and collective action.Only one article on Kripke's meaning skepticism has been not previously published.Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars Space is produced by, and produces, society
Thinkers have long analyzed things in space, but it is time to analyze space itself and "the social relationships embedded in it" according to Lefebvre. He wants to analyze the form, structure, and function of something he calls "social space" and explore how such spaces have been produced.4-0 out of 5 stars Engaging and intellectually nourishing
The Production of Space is a thick yet engaging introduction to Postmodern spatial theory, providing insights to a variety of philosophical concepts centering on how we perceive, construct, and reproduce both physical and mental spaces.While complex and eclectic, Lefebvre's book provides ample food for thought for those interested in the means by which we as human beings understand space in the world and how we negotiate and transpose it in our minds.4-0 out of 5 stars Cryptic Conceptualization of Space
Henri Lefebvre's epic book, The Production of Space is a cryptic exploration into the production of various kinds of space.While I highly recommend this book to anyone interested in a comprehensive spatialanalysis, I warn the reader to avoid jumping into the book blindly.It isnot a book to be kept on the night table and read leisurely before driftingoff to sleep. It is a serious book and requires serious concentration onthe part of the reader. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars please read this book
Few books clearly articulate the richness of Buddhist psychology for the general reader.Few books can inspire the reader to live more skillfully and empower her with teachings and tools to cultivate true happiness.Sure there are any number of "self-help" books on "how to feel happy," etc., but Ricard's book teaches about a much deeper, transformative happiness, which is within the reach of every human being.

Matthieu Ricard's latest book entitled Happiness: A Guide to Developing Life's Most Important Skill is an intelligent and easy to read guide.Ricard believes that happiness is not a matter of luck but a state of mind or attitude that anyone can attain with focus and practice.Although I did not find anything revolutionary in this book, it acts as a gentle reminder that in this life, attitude is everything. ...

4-0 out of 5 stars My Opinion on In a Different Voice
I thought that I was going to be overwhelmed with feminist views when I first checked this book out of the library; I was rather turned off. But when I started to read, I was intrigued. It was interesting to see the contrast between the different genders.
1-0 out of 5 stars A Myth is Born
In Psychology, as in other academic disciplines, the normal process is to conduct research on significant numbers of subjects, have the methodology and results peer reviewed, publish the research, then perhaps cross over to mass media.Gilligan has used Harvard's cache to ignore this responsible and time honored protocol.She used tiny samples, reached unwarranted conclusions, rushed them into print on the mass market, and started making the talk show circuit.Now, over 20 years later and after thirty some reprintings, she still has not published her research! Furthermore, she refuses to allow other researchers to see her data!
5-0 out of 5 stars Good starting point for learning about women's psychology
Originally published in 1982, this book was in its 33rd printing when it was reissued in 1993.It describes the developmental differences between men and women and what that means.Harvard professor Carol Gilligan explains that male development has typically focused on separation, individuation, logic, and hierarchy.Female development, on the other hand, has emphasized attachment, relationship, connection, and communication.I had several "ahas!" while reading this book for the first time in 2003.While I've always discounted some of Sigmund Freud's work, it had never occurred to me that much of traditional psychological theory, including the work of Jean Piaget, Erik Erickson, and Lawrence Kohlberg, has also been based on observations of men, then applied to women.As a result of comparisons to male norms that don't fit their own experience, women have often felt discounted and inferior, rather than simply different.It made sense to me that these comparisons and significant developmental differences often result in women feeling selfish and guilty when focusing on their own needs, rather than those of others.It also fit my experience that men and women tend to respond differently to attachment and separation issues.According to Gilligan, men see danger more often in intimacy than in achievement, while women sense more danger in impersonal and competitive situations.Gilligan's observations have generated quite a bit of controversy over the years (as indicated by some of the previous reviews on this list!), but ring true for many women (including me), and have been used as a stepping stone for the work of many later authors. ...

2-0 out of 5 stars Appearances and Being
Arendt's premise - assuming that Chapter 1 is the place to start and the book is not a suspense novel, that "Being and Appearing coincide," and that nothing exists that does not presume a spectator, made it difficult for me to continue the book.She maintains, up front, that Being and Appearance are prominent (she refers to them as part of the "two-world theory") philosophical fallacies.What a place too begin?! And so dogmatically!She goes on to use the internal organs of a man as an example of "behind the appearances" (my quote marks), then spins off additional abstractions (as if philospophy needs them) such as semblance and authentic appearance and process.Later, she pronounces "thought without speech is inconceivable"; oh boy.
5-0 out of 5 stars A must read
If you are interested in philosophy or religion, then you must read this book. I think book 2 on the will is the more important of the two books. The central issue is the movement of time, if time is linear then the will is central in creating reality, if time is circular then the will is an illusion.

5-0 out of 5 stars Philosophically speaking, this is Arendt at her best.
In her typical straight-to-the-point style of writing, Arendt explores some of the most philosophically important questions asked since antiquity. She guides us through the ages of development on topics such as freewill, time, and Being. She is one of the most important thinkers, not of the 20th century, but of all "time". This is Arendt for the philosopher/thinker, not the political scientist. From Heraclitus to Maurice Merleau-Ponty, Arendt leaves no great thinker's stone unturned. I've read a lot of books, and this is probably one of the most important. Does she give us any answers to these important questions? NO. However, she shows that there are no answers to these questions, only better questions to be asked. ... Read more

This is a great book. It would work for anyone with bipolar, no matter what stage of your treatment your in. It really gave me a different perspective to my illness. I found out about my illness 4 years ago and this book still helped me to learn a lot of things that I had never thought of before. I was really great.

5-0 out of 5 stars Business as a spiritual practice
I would like readers to know that while I practice the same lineage of Buddhism that Michael Roach does, we have different root lamas and am in no way affiliated with his Diamond Mountain University.
1-0 out of 5 stars This is nothing to do with Buddhism
That this book claims to use Buddhist tenets to help in daily life is nothing short of laughable. One of the principle teachings of Buddhism is renunciation, and the Diamond Cutter is a book that explains how to become wealthy (and not very clearly at that). In fact, an action aimed at gaining a result in this life is not, by definition, even considered a Buddhist action. This book is squarely aimed at this life's benefits. Geshe Michael Roach has long had a love affair with diamonds. In fact he spent 17 years working in New York City's diamond trade (the same time period that he claims to have been studying for his Geshe Degree in South India). Read more

This world is in need of a deep change, and through tantra, we can all unite and live as we are ..naturally.The first few chapters of this book changed my life in a matter of days (and I've bareley tried any of the tecniques).Through it i realized that there is no such thing as something being bad (bad energy, thoughts, actions).They just are holy, something from god, that you soudln't deny but embrace as your own, and through it you will accept yourself and all as the all powerful and all mighty, no matter what society may say about what is right or wrong.I have never read a book that has changed me so much, and has helped me to understand my life.

5-0 out of 5 stars A unique view
Osho has a unique view on things, a type of view you won't likely find somewhere else, so for this reason alone it is good to study some of his work.

5-0 out of 5 stars A Great Introduction to Buddhist Thought and Meditation!
This book and Sakyong Mipham's more recent "Ruling Your World," are permanent fixtures in my library.Sometimes Buddhist writings can be difficult to understand or relate to, but this author has a Western background and is able to communicate ideas in ways that are easy to identify with for people without a background in Buddhist thought.Our culture and the media encourage "monkey mind," and it's hard to gain control of inner thought processes in a world that constantly communicates "Buy More, Do More, Be More."This book offers a means of calming the internal turmoil and developing your mind to reach its potential.
4-0 out of 5 stars Good book-very helpful
This book has been helpful for dealing with anxiety/depression.I'm not much into just meditating or even following Buddhist thinking, however, there is value in what I've learned from this book -- disciplining the mind and learning to keep the mind "present".This has helped me from worrying "too far ahead" or losing perspective of life by helping strengthen my mind.I highly recommend this book along with practicing some form of meditation if you struggle with anxiety or negative/worrying thoughts.

5-0 out of 5 stars Best introduction to meditation
I think what sets this book apart from others of its kind is the unmatched clarity and simplicity of the language. The unique situation here is that Sakyong Mipham Rinpoche, an accomplished and very learned Tibetan Buddhist teacher, grew up in the West and so speaks our language like a native. Because of this, he is able to speak to us in a way that most other equally accomplished Tibetan lamas are unable to. It's important to emphasize that meditation is best learned and practiced under the guidance of a living human being who has some experience with it - a book alone will not suffice. But, having said that, this book is definitely a good companion to have when beginning your journey. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent first book for nonparametric stat methods
This is an excellent first book for nonparametric statistical methods.It is a cookbook, but is a good introduction to the many nonparametric techniques for assessing data.These are oftentimes much better suited for your data than the standard stuff you get in intro to statistics.The book by David J. Sheskin or by Conover should your next book.

4-0 out of 5 stars an easy-to-follow tool book, but use w/ caution
For a non math major (or stats major) user, this book offers an easy way to have works done quickly. But be cautious, an first-class cookbook does not necessarily yeild a first-class meal on your table.

5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent nonparametric statistics book
This is (together with Empirical Methods for Artificial Intelligence by Paul R. Cohen) the best of the statistics books I read. ... Read more

Editorial Review

If you dropped the Buddha into a modern metropolis, would he come off sounding like a 16th-century morality play or more like a drive-time disc jockey? Lama Surya Das doesn't spin platters for a living, but he does have a hip delivery that belies his years of sheltered training in Buddhist monasteries. In Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Great stuff!
Others have said it already. This is really an excellent book on Buddhism. Pretty complete for the neophite and insightfull for everyone. If you're looking into exploring Buddhism, and don't know for sure where to start, this could be your first book to read.The other great source of info for beginners is "Tibetan Buddhism from ground up" by A. Wallace. Peace to all sentient beings!

5-0 out of 5 stars Great western Buddhism introduction
This book served as my introduction to Buddhism which has created asnowball effect. I've since read all of Lama Surya Das' books and then some and have given this book as a gift to close friends. I also highly recommend anything by Thich Nhat Hanh.

3-0 out of 5 stars Give up on becoming a buddha...
...maybe a nice little monkey instead.You want to be all kinds of things.That's why the entire planet shudders at the thought of us.Monkeys that want to be saints, bodhisattvas, demigods, thinkers, planners, presidents, and ayatollahs.Sick little monkeys.Give it up.Put that "Buddha" inside you back to sleep...we've got enough ego dragging us into hells of our own making already.Surya Das is to buddhism as Dr. Phil is to psychology. ...

5-0 out of 5 stars Extortion
$112 for a 480 page book, written by a Calgary professor on human motivation? Even "hardbound" and "four-color" separation might justify a price of $30. Psychology books are not medical books, but by the price, you'd think they're the same league. In fairness, Franken's book is not unique. The extortionary prices of many psychology books are evidence that frugality, commonsense, reasonableness, etc. seem outside psychology's purview (much less motivations to avoid). Without reading this book, it has given me insights into "motivation" (besides greed); I know understand: "resistance" as a motivation. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars depths of perception
This book carries you into depths of perception, but uses simplicity as its guide. Steiner appears to believe in slow and easy, yet persistant. If one is willing, this book offers a way into the connection of our higher forces, and how they act upon us, through us, with us. With exact despription of techniques and understanding towards the goal, this literature begs the reader to come to your own comprehension. Out of your own experience, within this framework, on should find the way to higher perception, and contented understanding. If you're for real, this information is for real....give it a try

5-0 out of 5 stars A book to show you the way
Steiner explains in this great guide the reasons why we should walk the spiritual path to self-realization and how this happens if we so decide find the courage to do it.He talks about karma, higher beings, higher worlds, reincarnation, initiation, etc based on his own experiences. He also gives manypractical excercises in it.
5-0 out of 5 stars A Manual for Living in this World
Even if one is not interested in knowing about and experiencing higher worlds, this book is a great guide to living, full of wisdom and insight. A true spiritual path is also a path toward becoming a mature human being, which may not be terribly exciting to people seeking spiritual fireworks or wanting to promote egoistic aims. This path is one of selflessness and the strengthening of attention; both needed in an self-centered world suffering from an ever increasing attention deficit disorder. Steiner only speaks of what he has experienced personally. He is not a guru and expects no one to take his word for the truth of what he says. He encourages one to be open minded, try the exercises with patience and consistency(harder than one might think)and verify the truth for one's self. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars The Mystery of the Zombie Hunch
As the concept of the modular structure of the brain emerged, objections to the idea took the form of "Well, if my brain's made up of computers, somebody in there has to be in charge.It had better be me!" This comment, paraphrased from philosopher Jerry Fodor, typifies what Daniel Dennett has been contending with for many years.Although the "Cartesian theatre" notion, that the body was one aspect of our being and the mind another - "dualism" -has supposedly been supplanted, it has not lost its hold on our view of consciousness.We continue to insist, in some form or other, that "somebody, and it better be me" is inside our minds looking out at the world.Although we can't find that "self" in there, we have a hunch it's there.
4-0 out of 5 stars Not his best, but...
This was certainly not his best book - a rather imperfectly thrown-together collection of material, and in need of some editing.But Dennet is truly one of the greats, and always worth reading.If you are a fan, you will certinly want to read this one, and probably own it too.On the other hand, if you haven't read his 'Breaking the Spell' yet, DEFINITELY buy and read that first - it is 10 times more exciting.

1-0 out of 5 stars Most obstinate denial of the most obvious
The author fancies himself a Copernicus, by, similarly to the reversal of the notion that the sun revolves around the earth, rendering the notion of consciousness an "illusion" (last word, p.178). His ego is indeed enormous, my knowing of no other author quoting (p.45) and incessantly citing his own writing.
