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.

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".

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!

I looked for this book for years, it'd been out of print for a while. A thoroughly entertaining book - imagine if you set yourself a rule golive by, which said you were forbidden from saying no to anything.Imagine where that might take you. This book goes down that path in a funny yet thought provoking way.

In case you don't know, this is a Tom Robbins book written under the Rev Wing pseudonym. Personally, I think this would be a better audio book and that is on my list to check out.

If you are a Tom Robbins fan you will find this enjoyable. If not, I would probably say skip it. My fave Robbins book is Fierce Invalids and this book is not in that class of mystery/farce/love/occult with lots of humor. This has humor but is just not as funny and interesting.

It seems that Robbins used this fictional autobiography to get some relationship stuff of his chest - who knows really. But, my sense is that it was some kind of cathartic venture on his part. Whatever the case, it is Robbins typical style of bizarre characters and unusual life circumstances.

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.
