Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

What is Shen Ku? Roughly translated: "Pure Traveler" or "Phantom Passenger." What exactly is the "art of...?" Mastering the skill and knowledge of practically everything anyone comes across while on Earth, including:

* Tying knots and enhancing sex

* Numerology and self hypnosis

* Herbal therapy and forecasting weather

* Curing nosebleeds and removing stains

* Kung fu and magic tricks

* Isometric and breathing exercises of monks

* Self defense and catching fish

And this is only the beginning.

Irreverent and quirky, serious and 100% straightforward, The Art of Shen Ku explores hundreds of topics from a broad spectrum of life situations, and gives ingeniously simple advice on how to cope with them, overcome them, use them, and benefit from them.

I absolutely love this book! As do several friends of mine, my mother and my aunt! It has everything from survival information in all different types of climates and terrains, to old fashioned stain removal techniques. It's an amazing wealth of knowledge collected and put together in a fun format by a very talented man, complete with funny little characters throughout. Couldn't and shouldn't live without this book. :)

I have found this book to be very informative, in regards to survival in many different climates. Not one made to coddle those that just want to hear someone tell them they are good no matter what. It tells it like it is in the outdoors, what you need and what has to happen with your survival. It covers making your self into a fighter to a survivor in the streets. Or making your self into a hermit living out in the wilds.
