Originally wanderers and warriors, the English have certainly changed with the times. They’ve used their Asian tales and traditions and English noggins plus anything and everything to succeed as businessmen, writers, diplomats and thinkers. This quintessentially English book about the English by an insightful insider with an outsider’s eye is a wild, seemingly trackless roller coaster ride, loaded with hilarious anecdotes. As quirky, unpredictable and many sided as the English themselves, Idries Shah’s book is an experience in flexibility. It may even be a unique and useful way to do all kinds of other research and help us make sense of our lives.

What’s the point of a wise fool? Author Doris Lessing explained that “[Nasrudin's] antics are parallels of the mind's workings, designed to amuse the teahouses, but also for use on other levels.” Find our collection of Nasrudin stories here: https://idriesshahfoundation.org/the-mulla-nasrudin-corpus/
