I'd heard about this book all my life. When I disliked the first CD, I thought I would stick it out to see what everyone had raved about. By the middle of the second CD I couldn't take it anymore. This emperor was wearing no clothes, as far as I was concerned. Or maybe these insights seemed monumental 25 years ago.
A book that puts daily life into perspective, helping to differentiate between trivial and transcendental, and how to deal with both. Engaging and enlightening.
very deep analysis of the contradictory views of the world as seen by scientists and artists (romantics). He suggests (I think) that neither view is correct, but are rather simply 2 different ways of looking at the same world. suggests that technology is neither good nor bad, but should bring "piece of mind". He inspires the reader to stop and see the world, and to do every job with "care".
Great Book.!!! Everyone must read this book atleast once in their liifetime
ZAMM proves to span the concept of time and being while some how connecting the two beyond geologic terms. Some writings define a culture, without setting out to do so. This is one of those. After renting it, you will want to own a copy. It is a vacation without leaving your CD player.
