About the Author

Joe Blow is the pseudonym for a man who, though currently happy and high functioning, has had a long history of mental illness, including endogenous depression, bipolar disorder and obsessive compulsive disorder. His writing is the product of a lifelong struggle to integrate flashes of insight and powerful symbols which appeared to him, often during what we might define as psychotic episodes, with observable reality and a rudimentary knowledge of science by appropriating useful concepts from the work of such iconoclastic thinkers as Wilhelm Reich, R. D. Laing, Keith Johnstone, William Blake and Oscar Wilde. If asked whether this approach and this conceptual framework have provided him with a secure foundation for emotional stability, happiness and flowering creativity, Blow would reply, “Well, so far so good.” He also writes humorous erotica under the pseudonym Aussiescribbler.

This is a book that is full of insight and as a psychology major, I would highly recommend this book for all open minds.

Pure wisdom. This writer gives a lot of insight into the workings of the mind and the nature of reality. I've read a lot of Osho's work, and this book is in deep agreement and is also a good supplement to that work.

Sounds like it speaks in riddles
