'"The Book of Lies" is a witty, instructive, and admirable collection of paradoxes; however, it is not a philosophical or mystical treatise. Actually, its subtleties exhilarate. Scholars have said it is "stupendously idiotic and amazingly clever"' (and this is just the blurb, and only the beginning of the blurb at that!).
