CW Saves the World Again is fabulous. Wisdom, wit, deep ecological truths, and a cosmic vision that puts your problems and life into perspective. Funny, deep and easy to read...just the book for a gift or a dharmic cosmic visionary pick me up.

This book brings together an array of topics - from evolution to astrophysics to religion and spirituality to meditation practice to environmentalism. And it manages to do it in a way that seems perfectly simple and sensical. I found Mr. Nisker's writing so clean and clear, so human and funny, and so smart. As a psychologist, author, meditator and just as a person, I've thought about all of these topics quite a bit. But he managed to bring freshness and insight to them so gracefully. This book stands out to me from other really good books as one I'll not only go back to again and again, but one I'll buy for my friends. I'll tell them - this clarified my thinking AND it was fun.

If I've bought one book on Buddhism, I've bought fifty.

On a whim I bought this one, not really expecting much because the cover made me think I was probably going to be getting some sort of hipster smart ass take on how to become enlightened in 15 days or less.

I couldn't have been more wrong.

I am already starting to re-read "Crazy Wisdom" because in my opinion it is one of the most sensible hard hitting takes on the philosophy of Buddhism that I've ever come across. Yes, it has it share of puns and quips but the underlying logic of Mr. Nisker's take on our place in the cosmic reality is unassailable. It's certainly unsettling to come to grips with the fact that our place in this world is not on top of the evolutionary heap with a license to take what we want.

Mankind is only a tiny drop in ocean of existence and Wes Nisker's wonderful book makes that point very powerfully and tells us Buddhism helps immensely with this reality.

I ownly with his publisher had better taste in designing his cover.
