About Abide University Press

Despite the awesome-sounding name, Abide University Press is not a publishing house. Rather, we are a stamp of approval for books which we feel help promote the philosophy of Dudeism.

Books selected by Abide University Press are self-published by their authors but promoted at Abide University, the educational wing of The Church of the Latter-Day Dude (Dudeism).

In the future, the AUP site will be located at abideuniversity.com/press.

Do you have a book submission? We are looking for books on the following topics:

  • The Big Lebowski
  • Dudeism
  • Taoism
  • Epicureanism
  • Zen
  • Philosophy of living taught via pop culture
  • The Slow Movement
  • Simple Living
  • Entrepreneurship
  • Practical psychology
  • Pragmatic approaches to increasing quality of life
  • Anything along these lines

Please email us at the address provided here, with “AUP Submission” in the subject header.
