I had to laugh around page 25 when I read:
Jobs began sharing with Kottke other books, including Zen Mind, Beginner’s Mind by Shunryu Suzuki, Autobiography of a Yogi by Paramahansa Yogananda, and Cutting Through Spiritual Materialism by Chögyam Trungpa.
I've read two of them this year, leaving me only an Autobiography of a Yogi short of the full set, and I've even been pondering that though vaguely.
Prodnose: Bleedin' hippy.
Myself: It gets worse.
