“[Wes “Scoop” Nisker] delivers zen zingers with Borscht Belt timing.”—The New York Times

Coming at a desperate time for the planet, Crazy Wisdom Saves the World Again draws from religion, evolution, cosmology, and Buddhism, and calls for a new spirituality—one that fits our modern, scientific worldview. Wes “Scoop” Nisker shows why life is beautiful (“Be Here Wow!”) and invites all sentient beings to celebrate. Here is a seriously funny manifesto for Nisker fans and anyone looking for crazy wisdom to help cope with today’s world.

Journalist, author, and Buddhist meditation teacher, Wes “Scoop” Nisker has a number of earlier publications, including The Essential Crazy Wisdom (2001) and Big Bang, the Buddha, and the Baby Boom (2003). Nisker is well-known in California as an irreverent radio personality.
