The Incredible, Incomprehensible, Mulla
Why would anyone read these stories about this inconsistent, incomprehensible mulla? This guy who is stupid and vain, insightful and wise, at the same time. Because 'he is us' as we are in our own present and potential states. By persistent study -- without dissection -- it is possible to see the patterns in these stories reflected in our own lives. Shah published these stories from original sources over 30 years ago. With all the 'teaching story' material published since then they stand out as the real stuff for those that want it.

This edition is the only one still in print of Idries Shah's four collections of Nasrudin jokes that retains the quizzical cartoons drawn by Richard Williams and Errol Le Cain. They alone are worth more than the price of the book!Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
