Awesome Insights of Deep Dudes from Lao Tzu to Lebowski

 

totd-front-cover-smNow available in both print and Kindle format!

Written, illustrated and edited by Oliver Benjamin, the founder of Dudeism, The Tao of the Dude is an essential resource for practicing Dudeists to keep their minds limber and avoid uptight thinking.

Each chapter features thought-provoking introductory essays which discuss how each topic is realized in The Big Lebowski and in other works of art and philosophy, followed by a carefully edited collection of passages and quotes culled from a wide variety of sources throughout history.

The Tao of the Dude addresses various subjects near and dear to the Dudeist heart, such as conflict ("This Aggression Will Not Stand"), leisure ("Just Take it Easy Man") and tolerance ("That’s Just, Like, Your Opinion, Man"). Featuring luminaries such as Bertrand Russell, Lao Tzu, Ralph Waldo Emerson, Kurt Vonnegut and many many more, this manifesto makes it plain that Dudeism is a creed that has existed down through the generations, across the sands of time.
