Ishmael In Action

Spreading the Word
"Franz Kafka once wrote to a friend that the only books worth reading are those that 'wake us up with a blow on the head' and send us reeling out into the street, not knowing who or what we are. According to thousands of readers I've heard from, this is exactly what Ishmael does for them. What makes Ishmael important is not what it's "about" but rather what it DOES to you--and this is what you need to share with your friends."
- Daniel Quinn
