Publisher Comments:

Imagine trying to make sense of Timothy Leary's eight neurological circuits, G.I. Gurdjieff's self-observations exercises, Alfred Korzybski's general semantics, Aleister Crowley's magical theorems, and the several disciplines of Yoga; not to mention Christian Science, relativity, quantum mechanics and many other approaches to understanding the world around us. That is exactly what Wilson does in Prometheus Rising. In short, it is a book about how the human mind works and what you can do to make the most of yours. Readers have been known to get angry, cry, laugh, and even change their entire lives. Practical techniques to break free of your "reality tunnels." Now in its Second Revised Edition!

Katherine Stuart, June 21, 2009 (view all comments by Katherine Stuart)
A wonderfully entertaining instructional guide on reaching enlightenment. Part history of man; part critique of other existing philosophies: it's funny; it's light; it's incorrigibly optimistic much like The Singularity is Near. But not just optimistic, Wilson strives to be pragmatic and encouraging and of course he ends up being just the least bit full of himself.
