Are you kidding? Powell's Books and no one has reviewed "The Book" by Alan Watts?

If you've read and enjoyed any of the scriptures from Hinduism, Buddhism, Christianity or Islam, or anything about such works that pertain to their mystical aspects, buy this book. If you are at all interested in the "perennial philosophies" of our little planet, buy this book. If you appreciate the "spooky" realities of physics and the universe as we currently know it, buy "The Book".

In fact, because you can buy good used copies for about a buck apiece, buy ten. The chances are you will be wanting to gift copies to your friends, parents and children, plus you might want a few for those random acts of book kindness.
