Philosophical treatise arguing that humans have already achieved our highest heaven; the text thoroughly interspersed with interesting anecdotes and observations from the author's travels in Asia with his Chinese wife. UC Berkeley philosophy professor Hubert L. Dreyfus calls the book "Astonishing! Lively, well written, highly original" in a cover blurb. The first narrative describes an experience with hallucinogenic "Whiskey Lao" outside of Luang Prabang.
