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.

Customer Reviews

A beautiful, funny book.

A friend thought it would be funny; I just found it hard to pick up every time I put it down.

I looked for this book for years, it'd been out of print for a while.

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.

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.

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!

Format: Paperback
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.

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

Format: Paperback
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.

Format: Paperback
It overdoes the whole "message" the book puts forth, so reading the second half of it won't compare to how good reading the first half is, but all in all I love it. I'd give it 5 stars if the last 100 pages was just cut off, which would leave a little for the imagination as well.
Anyone who thinks that Vonnegut or Robbins wrote this is wrong. Robbins is a downright insult... it's Nicholas Palmer

I was disappointed in this story, no self help, no real story a very disjointed group of sentences.

Though I must admit I did enjoy the characters!
