This is the - all too true - story of one person's tragi-comic quest for spiritual enlightenment. Having given up on the (entirely godless) realm of would-be smart London restaurants, he journeyed widely (and frequently wildly) through India, China, Tibet, and parts of West Yorkshire. He also worked for various would-be deeply spiritual organisations. This unflinching quest for truth - incorporating walk-on parts for everyone from Marianne Faithfull to the Dalai Lama - led, not entirely unexpectedly - to a far from enlightened descent into alcoholism and misery. Having sobered up, and grown up (a bit), our hero began to ponder: what is really at the heart of all this spiritual carry-on anyway? And can it be of any use, given the challenges we face? What if we're all for it anyway? What's the appropriate response -spiritual or otherwise, to that? All good questions For God's Sake is spirituality without the usual self-help smugness, written by a normal, flawed human being, in the hope of engaging a similar audience. It deals with serious themes of spiritual development, and the role this might play in our current environmental crisis - all in the form of a heartfelt, and often very funny personal memoir.
