9 of 11 people found the following review helpful By Norman E. Babbitt on September 29, 2007
Format: Paperback
I love David Brockman's book, "The Wonder of This". It's like a loving, crisp karate chop to the spiritual funny bone, where duality is Oneness and Oneness is duality. This is anything but a "cerebral" book. Don't expect a precise dissertation on non-dual teaching. Yet this book hits it's target, spot on! The target is seeing beyond all the excess baggage of the so-called "spiritual path". David, whatever that dream character really is, simply expresses "LIFE!" as is. It is made inescapably clear that there is nothing that is not the Oneness, thus seeking IT is also just more of the It's pure play. The whole point and the way it is expressed in the book are one and the same: a boisterous celebration of everything in nothing and nothing in everything and the utter pointless wonder of IT all; simple child-wonder!

It doesn't come any clearer or more direct than this!!
Page 20 is all you need. The rest is just brilliant fun.
This book delivers such a knock-out blow to the mind and the story of 'you'. If you buy this book you need to beware that there is a good chance that everything about you, everything you take yourself to be, could just disappear, and all that will be left is a body sitting holding a book in this moment with whatever is arising. This book can return you to childlike simplicity, back to the playful joy of simply being alive in this moment. Call it 'enlightenment', call it what you like, it doesn't matter, suddenly everything is just seen as it is, in this every fresh eternal moment. Wow!!!

Format: Paperback
This book is different; new.
It claims nothing, yet fundamentally challenges every pre-conceived notion of modern thinking and behaviour that can be imagined.
A revelation. A mystery unfolding. A secret seemingly hidden from view. This book bursts into life; as brilliant as it is ordinary. It emerges from an apparent paradox which sees both its words and form fall away as quickly as they arise.
Yet what is distilled, perhaps, is a resonating sense of wonder - and a knowing wink to the author, that says yes! the joke is got.
Enjoy this one :-)

Format: Paperback
First, let me compliment the first two reviewers, both of whom marvelously capture the immediacy and impact of this book, to which I add my dittos! Whether the illusory separate self has been seen through or not, "The Wonder of This" makes it clear as it gets in words that none of that makes any difference, and that all that appears is but a wondrous imaginary game bubbling up from nowhere and having no purpose beyond itself. With a deceptively casual British wit, brilliant metaphors and a friendly conversational style, David Brockman hits you between the eyes with a truly radical expression of that which lies beyond words. So if you find yourself bogged down in a self-perpetuating intellectual quagmire over non-dual concepts, this book could well mark the letting go of all that and just being with life as it IS. What a relief, no!?
