    Alan Watts' "The Book on Taboo Against Knowing Who We Are"

    Kinda like Carl Sagan, but grounded in Eastern philosophy instead of astronomy and physics.
    Seems very promising at the start but loses steam after a while (currently 1/3 of the way through). Watts seems like a great mind, but in arguing his main thesis (we are the universe dreaming itself, essentially), he gets bogged down in new-agey mush.
