The list author says: "I like my humor fast and unexpected. I like stuff that makes me think and see the world in a new way. I enjoy philosophy and spirituality; Buddhism and Taoism. On TV, some favorites are Seinfeld, Arrested Development, Community, Cougar Town, The Office, and Parks and Recreation. I like smart comedy, but I see the value in the absurd and low-brow...when done well. I'm also huge fan of Star Trek (TNG, DS9, VOY, and ENT). These are some of my favorite books, from all genres. Enjoy!"
"I've read (and own) many Krishnamurti books, and this is the one book that I would recommend to anyone as their first taste of Krishnamurti. I would also have to say that if I had to have just one of his texts as the only text in my collection, it would be "Freedom From the Known". What more can be said that hasn't been said already? Krishnamurti is one of the greatest thinkers of all time."
"New-Agey, sure, but the philosophy has real science to back it up. Redfield's whole series of books has the capacity to change a person's life. Written in simple, easy-to-understand language. Good stuff."
"If I could offer one book to every man, woman, and child on Earth to read, this would be it. Hands down. Whether we admit it or not, we are a religious planet and it is inexcusable that we allow ourselves to be ignorant of what's out there. Beautifully written, not textbook-y at all. The best of best. Truly a remarkable book."
