•Great Dudes who changed the world (without really trying)
•New feminist philosophy for special ladies

    The Dude Abides!!

    If you enjoyed The Big Lebowski, you should read this book. Its the Cliff's Notes to all of the subtleties, metaphors & meanings of the characters & events of the movie. One passage that stood out was, "we can't control what happens to us; we can only control our reaction." Easy to say, but hard in practice. There are many good lessons the Dude can teach about taken 'er easy. You dont have to smoke weed to relate to this book, but it definitely helps. Enjoy!
