About the Author

Rob Brezsny writes "Free Will Astrology," a syndicated weekly column that reaches nine million readers in over 100 publications, including the Village Voice, where it has appeared every week since January 1999. It is also published on his website, at, and is distributed through a weekly email newsletter with 26,500+ subscribers.When Utne Reader named Brezsny a "Culture Hero," it observed: "With a blend of spontaneous poetry, feisty politics, and fanciful put-on, Brezsny breathes new life into the tabloid mummy of zodiac advice columns."In its profile of Brezsny, The New York Times quoted a reader who compared his writing to that of Tom Robbins. The horoscopes "are like little valentines, buoyant and spilling over with mischievousness. They're a soul prognosis."Before The Televisionary Oracle, Brezsny's enduring artistic artifacts were music albums, one created as a solo artist and three with the band World Entertainment War, which recorded for MCA. One of World Entertainment War's albums was nominated for a "Bammy," California's version of the Grammies, and benefited from the promotional wizardry of rock's top impresario, Bill Graham, who managed World Entertainment War until his death.Brezsny's latest book, Pronoia Is the Antidote for Paranoia, can be seen here.

I love Brezsny's column, but I found this book to be a very drawn-out apology for maleness, and it clobbers the reader relentlessly with a list of pseudo-feminist expressions which sound like they were devised with the help of cheap wine. Within a hundred pages I had seen the phrase 'Menstrual Temple of the Funky Grail' too many times and just couldn't stand it anymore-- he had a huge list of 'funny expressions' which were unnecessarily capitalized and it contributed to the air of vanity about the book. I can see what he's trying to do but it comes off so stupid that I can't applaud him for it. He seems like another one of those 'Free Love' guys from the sixties who used that pretense to sleep with as many women as possible without any sense of responsibility. I think Breszny is too vain and manipulative to be a real feminist.

This book is amazing! Intense! Affirming! Quirky! Beautiful! Wacked out! Exhilarating! Emotional! Hilarious! Probably the best read I've ever found, at least in my 20's. Seriously, grab this one up. It's sweet.

You will better absorb this book if you are relaxed. If you like Robert Anton Wilson, you will like this. If you liked 'The Electric Kool-Aid Acid Test' you will like this. If you just need some new thoughts to think, you will like this. Namaste.

This book takes the reader into the world of the nonliteral where all is not what it is supposed to be according to the corporate advertisers. If you dare challenge your perception of who you are and where God is then read on. The book is written from three points of view and I found validity entwined in each of them. If you enjoy looking a little deeper than the cushion of your couch for your remote control, you'll enjoy this book.
