Description of this Book

Hailed by the New York Times, CBS Evening News' Eye On America Report, The Associated Press, and mass media as a consumer hero in a public battle with Starbucks Coffee, the author heads into new territory toward an extraordinary breakthrough in human equality and the evolution of human freedom. The 20th century challenge between Eastern spiritualism and Western science suggests: Can we handle human freedom? The merging meaning and struggle of freedom into the 21st century finds expression in the true story of two people on a getaway vacation in Yosemite National Park. Profoundly influenced by the accomplishments of Robert M. Pirsig's Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance and Lila, the author offers a stunning look into the freedom of Quality. On one level a work of philosophical compatibility between Eastern and Western values, it is also a story of friendship and human differences. The characters' strange and unwinding dialogue along the middle fork of the Tuolomne River finds two parallel worlds of experience and thought that mix in an enlightening blend of comedy and tragedy. The philosophical inquiry strips away the narrator's veneer and connects his own mounting failure to the larger problem of human balance. . . . . .and from the ancient Yosemite valley floor seems perhaps to come the strangest kind of success ever heard of . . . This book is wonderful. I'm so happy to be a part it. I'm like the character who appears in the last act of a play with the key to the unravel a mystery. STELLA STEVENS (Hollywood Legend and Co-star with Jerry Lewis in The Nutty Professor )
