Loving this book about seeking Bhuddist enlightenment in the Far East. My Amazon review.
5.0 out of 5 stars Like a younger, never grumpy Paul Theroux. And much better on sex and enlightenment. 11 July 2013
By Mark Ramsden
Man gets lost while seeking enlightenment, gets mired in desire.
Wise, funny, no mosquitoes. Excellent travel writing, giving us a vivid account of Laos, Cambodia, Burma, and Thailand, and many shrewd observations of people and places. A level headed view of the sex trade and the business of Bhudda. Much helpful advice for Dharma Bums, plenty to chew on if you’ve ever dabbled with Zen. Very good if you’re more On The Couch than On The Road and essential if you’re visiting the Far East or just want to have fun.
