    Money and the Meaning of Life Paid Member

    Money and the Meaning of LifeBy Jacob Needleman. Doubleday: New York, 1991. 321 pp. $20.00 (hardcover). "Tether your camel, then talk of God," goes the old desert saying. Perhaps you know people who could use that advice—people who are afraid of the marketplace and find it distasteful. They are uneasy with its compromises and distracted by its excesses. They disparage their "day job," and, as a result, they do not roll well with the punches of the material world. Other people, actively involved in the marketplace, have rip-roaring careers; they seem to make a living with their left hand while they have fun with their right. And then there are those who say there are only two things worth making—money and a soul. More »

    Holy Madness: The Shock Tactics and Radical Teachings of Crazy-Wise Adepts, Holy Fools, and Rascal Gurus Paid Member

    Holy Madness: The Shock Tactics and Radical Teachings of Crazy-Wise Adepts, Holy Fools, and Rascal GurusBy Georg Feuerstein. Paragon House: New York, 1991. 259 pp. $24.95 (hardcover). Everyone is entitled to receive at least two pearls of wisdom in exchange for the four years of often misdirected efforts known as "college." For me they came in two successive sentences of Professor Irving Halperin's lecture on twentieth-century literature: "A paragraph should always be slightly longer than it is wide...And never read anything but great books—and truly awful books."

    The Code of the Warrior: In History, Myth, and Everyday Life Paid Member

    The Code of the Warrior: In History, Myth, and Everyday LifeBy Rick Fields. HarperCollins: New York, 1991. 339 pp. $15.00 (paperback). An ancient Chinese curse says "May you be born in an interesting time!" This epithet hangs over the inhabitants of the twentieth century, an era where not only war threatens our existence, but pollution, greed, overpopulation, and disease can seem overwhelming enemies. Yet when we examine the situation more closely, the enemy is—as always—ourselves. With the world poised on the edge of destruction, the timing is just right for this probing book by Rick Fields, author of How the Swans Came to the Lake, and Tricycle's Editor-at-Large. More »
