5.0 out of 5 stars in your face truth June 13, 2005
By Carol
This book is so true you will find yourself at a peaceful silience, if you are not laughing out loud! Too bad it is not a true story. I can't believe someone can come up with such real accounts of human behavior without having experianced it firsthand! I am assuming some of it was lived. The psycology of thought and life's reaction to attitudes is thrown at you with amazing precision. I am enjoying the read and am in no way insulted by his use of language as it is as real as real life can be. Thank you whomever truly wrote this book! I am greatful for your insight and will pass this book along.

5.0 out of 5 stars A lot of fun about nothing April 13, 2000
This book should be enjoyed for what it is; the secret of life. Now that I have let the cat out of the bag everyone will be rushing to buy this out-of-print gem. But, no need to worry, it can be found in many fine used bookstores. It is a fun read, along with some profound insights hidden amonst the clarinet playing. And yes, YES works.

5.0 out of 5 stars Read it, Re-read it, and will probably read it again April 12, 2002
I read this book once years ago and couldnot put it down. I found it in a an old box of books the other day and re-read it, and again could not put it down. This is truly the most fun book I have ever read. It's a great theory, and even better when you live it through the characters in the book. This is one book I would recomend to anybody looking to lighten up!

This book is for every single person, as said in the book, Rev. Wing speaks every ones language. his outlook on life through the eyes of Yes, are incredible, the most remarkable book I have ever read, saying Yes to things helped me so much, it also helped the thirty people I bought the book for. This book is far from only applying yes to everything, but also entertaining and fun, from clarinets, to zucchini and cantaloupe, to a gay bar and self-cleaning ash trays. Phenomenal book.

5.0 out of 5 stars tongue in cheek? or the True Way? November 16, 1998
By A Customer
this is either a great satire, a thoroughly enjoyable read, or the Holy Instrument of the True Light. Or, all three. Only those of us who can accept the crass vulgarity of the first Word as well as the Unifying Inclusion of the Second Word will find out. Bless you, Noble Freaks

I picked up "Yes" out of recommendation from one of my friend who, unfortunately, lost his copy. I have managed to pick up a used copy years later.

"Yes" does have a certain graphic aspect, which will turn off most people, citing it as immoral. The joy of reading it, however, comes from the depth in which the Reverend depicts his characters. It is not very difficult to see, that each chracter symbolises a certain philosophical psychological principle. The three sisters, for instance, make an uncanny resemblence of Siegmund Freud's id, ego, and superego. Without giving too much details, one of them went missing.

This is not to say, that the characters in "Yes" are one-dimensional. Their interactions, and the plots that go with them, are much more engaging, and self-evolving, than what the title would lead the reader to believe. Of course, one can easily get off with the rudimentary humour, but it is the layering of the plot, characters, and symbolism that gives "Yes" a definite appeal.

While I highly doubt the events in the novel actually took place, it is a very enjoyable read, as long as you keep an open mind.

Some time in the late 1980s, I first heard of this book "FYes" (I don't think I can write out the full title in the review, or Amazon will delete it). I saw it being advertised in a new age store's catalog. I never forgot the title. Last year I decided to seek out a copy, buy it, and read it once and for all.

This book is essentially a funny novel written in the first person, the main character being the author himself, "Wing F. Fing", mixed with some philosophical ramblings. Or rather, as you find out from reading the book, that was the name he decided to take up after he had left his wife and family and formed a cult. The book goes back and forth between the funny story, and his own philosophical reflections. He especially explores the word "Yes", which his cult is based upon. Basically, he advocates approaching life's problems with a humorous, Zen-like application of reverse psychology. For example, he first discovers this when he gets into an argument with his teenage daughter, who wants to go out on a date with a boy. But instead of protesting, the father (the author) says "Yes", she may go, while additionally going into graphic detail of all the undesirable things that could happen (pregnancy, etc.) with a smile on his face, which ultimately discourages her from wanting to go. After philosophizing on the word "Yes", near the end of the book he also explores the "F" word, its origins, and its paradoxical use of being both a word for making love and a word for anger.

After finishing the book, it occurred to me that the author manages to never use the word "no" anywhere. It shows up symbolically though in a few of the characters names, like "Norine".

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant Precursor to Yes Man Movie August 15, 2012
I found this book about 20 years ago and it was a revelation. I was a young seeker, taking myself way too seriously. This was the perfect antidote. It's a great story - super zany - filled with situations too wild to be made up. I think the author has lived this story, or met the characters in his own life. There's an authenticity to it which feels true, however twisted it may be. Over the years I've read it probably eight times or so. Good fun from start to finish. I always thought it would make a great movie ...

And I just saw 'Yes Man' with Jim Carrey and Zooey Deschanel. It is not a film of the book, so don't be confused. But it is about a man who has a life-changing moment in which he decides to say yes to everything that comes his way. And, as you can imagine, his life changes radically.

I wonder if there was some cross pollination there ?

It's commonly asserted that Tom Robbins wrote this book under a nom de plum, and that sounds reasonable. There is also a book of the Yes Man movie (probably what the movie was based on) by Danny Wallace. And the description sounds very similar to this book. Makes you wonder.

This book is hard to find - I've loaned out my copy over the years, always with the strict imperative to return it to me or suffer dire consequences. And here it is on Amazon, just a click away. Do yourself a favor !

3.0 out of 5 stars Strictly a side-show attraction from Tom Robbins
Not his best; a reiteration of themes previously visited.
Doesn't compare with his other work; Jitterbug Perfume remains his most original book.

4.0 out of 5 stars chapters
Several of the chapters should be required reading in college. Though IMO the book falls short in the ending, and the characters are not really vivid, the story is interesting.

More About the Author

A sad, defeated man sat alone in a cabin in the mountains. On the radio, a psychologist offered advice about how to cope with life's problems, recommending one self-help book after another. Irritated to the point of shouting, both at the shallow advice and by the idea that some book could solve his problems, the man stormed out of the cabin.

He made his way through the forest muttering to himself, until finally he yelled, "Oh, sure! Read this book. Yeah! Read that book. Right! That'll help! Fuuuuck, YES!"

He stopped in his tracks. "Aaaah," he thought, "Yes! Accept everything! Yes, I'll do that!" And so it was that Wing Fu Fing was born while walking in the woods.
