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): -Secrets of sacred Dudeist practices-The Seven Spiritual Laws of Taking it Easy-Great Dudes who changed the world (without really trying)-New feminist philosophy for special ladies-The Way of the Dude applied to politics, ethics and finances-A 12-step program for personal dudevolution-The 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.
Oliver Benjamin founded The Church of the Latter-Day Dude in 2005. His website, dudeism.com, features Lebowski-related news, fan discussions, and art inspired by the movie. Raised on In-N-Out Burgers in Southern California he now lives in Thailand, a place where, in Dude-like fashion, people wear flip-flops even with formal wear. Dwayne Eutsey serves as the Arch Dudeship of the church and founded its monastic order, The Brotherhood Shamus. He is a writer/editor abiding near a nice, quiet beach community in Maryland with his wife and three children.
