his ideas seem to make a lot of sence. i don't think that society as a whoe could exist if we were all dice people, but if you're life seems on a loosing streak, why not try it?
i'd say that larry's initial oppinions about random living were the best way to allow the dice to improve your life in some way: don't let them make major decisions, and don't bother using thm if everything's going your way. but, if you're on the down and out, why not try a previously suppressed fraction of yourself??? after all, it could be far better..
the series of books are very well written, they can appeal to a stupid and an inteligent audience alike. the books demonsrae whtat i feel is the only way that true zenism can practiced in new york. the author has some major issues with phyciatrists just saying "mmmm" and also has some major issues with anal sex and bowel movements gnerally, but it may have been his intentention to highlight issues that readers may have had.
anywho, enough blabbering, give the books a go. they will make you think. maybe too much.. took me almost a year to read the frist one (the dice man), it just posed too many good, well thought out and revolutionary ideas. had me daydreaming for hours.
may chance be with you, sam

Possibly the most life changing (cliche') book i have read with the last temptation running alongside. The idea of 'dice life' is not one meant to be followed literally (although in some cases it can be very interesting) but it is a thought provoking and razor sharp attack on the conforms of society and the individual. If you have any interest what so ever in the psychology of the human condition then you must read this book.
