As a great fan of Alan Watts, I'd heard many of his talks over and over, but when I landed this compilation in my mp3 player, I was given 14 hours of his finest speech. That was originally shortly before being admitted to hospital for a stem cell transplant, a risky procedure for rebooting my immune system with healthy young bone marrow cells, while the cancerous cells destroying my bones were killed off with a massive dose of chemo poison.
I mention this to illustrate the extraordinary experience I had in being kept safe, mentally, emotionally and spiritually by Alan Watts' unarguable description of reality from the inside-out. For two weeks, Alan kept me company as my ailing immune system was destroyed and then rebooted. His words eased my fears as they described my own being and relationship with the Universe in the most simple terms.
On my way to recovery, I eventually grasped that which most people couldn't conceive. Not because it requires any great intellectual feat, but because we are not conditioned to experience the world from the inside-out, a perspective from which death cannot exist as a direct experience, anymore than birth can.
This material is profoundly capable of shifting one's perspective with repetitive listening, and Alan Watts' beautiful voice makes it a pleasure to listen to again and again. as moments of epiphanic A-Ha come thick and fast.

Wonderful to have the chance to not only receive the wisdom of this brilliant man, but to also actually hear the material as the original talk (& not read by a narrator). Thank you to everyone that made this possible. Fascinating material, perfect format.

This book is as amazing as other Alan Watts books. However, if you already purchased "You're it" then this book is very very similar with identical talks.
