Philosopher Alan Watts shows that it is only by acknowledging what we do not and cannot know that we can learn anything truly worth knowing. In The Wisdom of Insecurity, he shows us how, in order to lead a fulfilling life, we must embrace the present and live fully in the now.

    "Great read--don't let the title scare you. This book helped me to relax and allow myself to be vulnerable and human to a greater extent, and to slow down with my endless reaching for more, more, more when it comes to material security. It may seem counter-intuitive, especially in U.S. "culture" (which, to me, is nothing but a bunch of hyped-up consumerism), but it really gave me a chance to actually enjoy what I've got in the present moment."

    "Normally I do not ready self help books, but this book is outstanding! This book will really open up your eyes and make you see the light. It will open your mind up like it should be. I really felt this book spoke deep to me. It allowed me to see what I really wanted out of life."

    "This is a very good example of a self help book if this is the problem you need help with. It probably won't help with some issues but if you want to live in the now, this book is for you. "

    "This particular Amazon listing isn't quite a perfect solution. While it lists the various formats for Watts' book, the audio version is not not currently available and the hardback version is priced out of reach of most average readers. It took me a few additional clicks to access pages where I could purchase either the Kindle version and the paperback version. I would say that's a partial solution, but one more intrepid customers might not follow the digital breadcrumbs. Overall, It took a little added work but this did get me to one of the best motivational books around. "

    "This is a bunch of psychological garbage, not fit for any teen. Do we really need to tell a bunch of confused teens to live in the now!! Come on, Dribble at best."

    "I believe that it is important to admit to knowledge shortomings, as presented in the solution. However, I do not see how admitting lack of knowledge is linked to embracing the now, the idea presented secondly. These two ideas seem incongruous. "

    "Using self-help books is a great option to better yourself. It can show you ways to help better yourself that you might not have thought about on your own. Reading is always a great option to better yourself."
