The World Is Made of Stories Kindle Edition
An inspired, sustained, poetic, and not-quite-linear contemplation of the nature of mind. David R. Loy leads a merry, twisting chase.--Kate Wheeler, editor of Nixon Under the Bodhi Tree
Drawing on a broad range of religious and secular sources, David Loy's compelling story about stories reveals through a series of clear and penetrating reflections the inescapable presence of narrative in human life.--Stephen Batchelor, author of Confession of a Buddhist Atheist
In this slender but powerful book Loy draws the reader's attention to the power of words. He shows how stories have spoken us into existence, how each of us story the world into existence, and how these different stories inform and transform themselves, each other, and us. I consider Loy one of the most important spiritual thinkers of our day.--James Ishmael Ford, author of Zen Master WHO?
Please handle carefully! Some readers may be profoundly unnerved by this book, others will find it deeply liberating--no one, I think, will go away unchanged.--Kurt Spellmeyer, author of Buddha at the Apocalypse --This text refers to the paperback edition.

By the end, I was slightly disappointed for I was seeking a more metaphysical perspective on the difference between the "I" and the "Me", which the author alluded to every so often in a very lucid approach (to an exceedingly complicated subject), yet left me wanting for more indepth yearning.
Tremendous research, knowledge, presentation, yet I believe the mistake was definitely mine for I was expecting a more philosophical presentation on the ontology of being.
but I think this book was overpriced and over long.
great subject but gets kinda beaten to death and I kept getting the feeling that he was determined to build a book around quotes instead of using the quotes to support his ideas.
