I wish I was the person I’m pretending to be

Jack Gardner
* Jack is an award-winning copywriter and Zen philosopher.

* Has a full entry in Geary's Guide to the World's Great Aphorists.

* Author of Words Are Not Things.

* His work is quirky, individual wisdom.

* His thinking is clever, touching, thought-provoking and inspirational.

He’s brilliant, crazy really! For instance, in the foreword to his next book, his introduction has been conceived and written backwards, from its end to your beginning. And it works! You feel good about cracking what he’s done, and you read him more comprehensively. Simple really. And very Zen. But let him speak for himself.

“I was in Japan when the notion emerged – why not compress whole novels into single aphorisms? So I set about to express integrated complex life ideas as a single indisputable truth. My collection here has not been written as pearls of wisdom, but to provide ideas for thought. Chase them down and through their many alleys yourself.”
