CAUTION: To all the world's thinkers, artists, poets, and misfits: SoulPancake is a movement to chew on Life's Big Questions. Side effects may include change in the way you think about what it means to be human. Don't say we didn't warn you.

Somewhere over the course of history, chewing on Life's Big Questions lost its cool factor. Fortunately for mankind, Rainn Wilson (best known for playing Dwight Schrute on NBC's The Office) and a bunch of his friends are on a mission to change that.

"Speak your mind; unload your questions; and figure out what it means to be human." This book, like Rainn Wilson's namesake website, stands or falls on that motto.

I saw Rainn Wislon on Super Soul Sunday & I didn't want to miss a word of what he said...after the show I immediately bought the book...this book is one of the best books i've read...its funny & spiritual...two words you usually don't see together, but should...life should be enjoyed, and when we take it too serious, I really think we miss the spiritual side of it...a must read

I've just began the book, but I'm already enthralled with it. I think it will take a bit of time to move through, because each page offers a new thought to ponder and activity to tackle. That's the only frustrating thing! It's so great I want to just sit and read it for hours, but that would mean just blowing through everything so great!

Interactive, Colorful, Delicious, Fantastic. Rainn Wilson and the co-writers are wonderfully inspiring. The book is bursting with new ideas, creative dares, and wild, thought-provoking art. The pages are full of spine-tingling ideas, questions, challenges and themes from a wide spectrum of the human experience. The enormous range of quotes and artistic graphic really draws together everything the title suggest: a well-baked batter for the soul. A great, refreshing idea for a website, and now a book!

Whether you buy this book for yourself or you give it as a gift, you will absolutely love this book. It's filled with 180 questions that will blow your mind. What is even better is it provides these questions without being self righteous. I'd also recommend that you buy "When God Stopped Keeping Score," an intimate look at the power of God and forgiveness. Given the chance, it too could change your life.

This is the best book of the year! The artwork is genius and just fun to look at. The questions are intriguing and thought provoking. It's great to sit and casually read or perfect for sparking in depth conversations with friends and even strangers. The challenges will get you off your butt and into action. Get this book or you'll be missing out on the best book of the year!
