THE DUDE ABIDES... AND YOU CAN TOO! When you seek salvation from this stressed out, uptight world, there's only one man to go to for guidance-the Dude. At once helpful, funny and profound (like The Big Lebowski itself), this survival guide from the founders of the Church of the Latter-Day Dude and their top disciples shows how to be as Dude-like as the Dude (well, almost): oSecrets of sacred Dudeist practices oThe Seven Spiritual Laws of Taking it Easy oGreat Dudes who changed the world (without really trying) oNew feminist philosophy for special ladies oThe Way of the Dude applied to politics, ethics and finances oA 12-step program for personal dudevolution oThe science of really tying your room together... All this and a lot more what-have-you. So the next time life throws you a gutterball, just pick up this book and ask, 'What Would the Dude Do? ' It's your answer for everything.

The first part of the book explores the movie "The Big Lebowski". It seems that there is even now a quasi religion around the character the Dude from the film. A great film, and some good life lessons, but it seems like kind of a stretch to make this into a religion. They seem to have put a lot of effort into this which ironically seems kind of un-Dude like. Still it was a fairly fun read and has some good life lessons. My question for the movie and the Dude is, how does he get money to buy gas, pay the rent, and go bowling. I think there is a missing element and it is much harder to live the Dude way than admitted in the book or here. It is kind of like in the movie Ghandi where Ghandi is living on the ashram and they comment that it take a lot of dough to live the ashram lifestyle. If you can pull it off though it is a pretty awesome way to live (Dude or ashram).
