From the Amazon description:
A commercial flop in its initial release in 1998, The Big Lebowski has since emerged as a cult phenomenon complete with an annual fan festival, midnight movie screenings, and even its own religion. Now the founder of the Church of the Latter-Day Dude has brought together his own prophetic insights along with the advice of his top disciples to show readers how they, too, can lead a more relaxed, laid-back life based on the ways of Jeffery The Dude Lebowski.
The Abide Guide is a self-help resource that believes The Big Lebowski is more than just a movie; it’s a way of life. Packed full of tips, investigations, and far-out facts related to the movie, The Abide Guide holds the answers to all life’s questions. At once funny and profound, like the classic film itself, the book shows the easiest way to be Dude-like in a chaotic world; and includes moral and inspirational life lessons from key scenes in the movie, the seven habits of highly lazy yet totally successful Dudes, and great Dudes from history who changed the world without trying. Now when life throws a gutter ball, it’s easy to just ask, What would the Dude do?
