Alan Watts is the perfect guide for a course correction in life, away from materialism and its empty promise (Deepak Chopra). Here he shows us how--in an age of unprecedented anxiety--we must embrace the present and live fully in the now in order to live a fulfilling life.

Spending all our time trying to anticipate and plan for the future and to lamenting the past, we forget to embrace the here and now. We are so concerned with tomorrow that we forget to enjoy today. Drawing from Eastern philosophy and religion, Alan Watts shows that it is only by acknowledging what we do not--and cannot--know that we can learn anything truly worth knowing.

Perhaps the foremost interpreter of Eastern disciplines for the contemporary West, Watts had the rare gift of 'writing beautifully the unwritable.' --Los Angeles Times
