99th Monkey: A spiritual journalist's misadventures with gurus, messiahs, sex, psychedelics, and other consciousness-raising experiments

Novelist, publisher and editor Sobel (Minyan) does a fine job making his 30-year quest for spiritual awakening widely identifiable with a funny, clear-eyed account that takes readers around the world and through a gauntlet of gurus, shamans, workshops and retreats. Sobel tours through Jerusalem, India and Brazil, and though his spiritual journey doesn't provide any answers, it provides lots of engaging perspective on modern man's confounding array of ancient and contemporary fulfillment schemes.
