Biografia breu
A prolific author and speaker, Alan Watts was one of the first to interpret Eastern wisdom for a Western audience. Born outside London in 1915, he discovered the nearby Buddhist Lodge at a young age. After moving to the United States in 1938, Alan became an Episcopal priest for a time, and then relocated to Millbrook, New York, where he wrote his pivotal book The Wisdom of Insecurity: A Message for an Age of Anxiety. In 1951 he moved to San Francisco where he began teaching Buddhist studies, and in 1956 began his popular radio show, “Way Beyond the West.” By the early sixties, Alan's radio talks aired nationally and the counterculture movement adopted him as a spiritual spokesperson. He wrote and traveled regularly until his passing in 1973.

It was a quick read. Due to the material's age, I did not find anything that I haven't already come across elsewhere. The disdain for prohibition and the knowledge that it simply does not work plainly put as it was, to me, was a point of interest. Politicians (at least in this country) are so far behind this currently that a book from the late 1960s is still somewhat relevant. Of course, most of those mummies were around then too: I should call them all ghouls from now on. Do I recommend this one? Not really, you could probably find something more up-to-date along the same lines.… (més)
