The Gods Drink Whiskey: Stumbling Toward Enlightenment in the Land of the Tattered Buddha

by

The Gods Drink Whiskey: Stumbling Toward Enlightenment in the Land of the Tattered Buddha Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This funny, action-packed travelogue through Thailand, Cambodia, Vietnam, and Sri Lanka introduces readers to the basics of Buddhism in a way that could not be more entertaining, nor more thought-provoking. This is a "Year of Living Dangerously" that provides a compelling look into the clash of civilizations in a little-known corner of our shrinking world.

Synopsis:

Buddhism, Booze, and the Four Noble Truths
