About Joe Blow

Joe Blow is the pseudonym for a man who, though currently happy and high functioning, has had a long history of mental illness, including endogenous depression, bipolar disorder and obsessive compulsive disorder. His writing is the product of a lifelong struggle to integrate flashes of insight and powerful symbols which appeared to him, often during what we might define as psychotic episodes, with observable reality and a rudimentary knowledge of science by appropriating useful concepts from the work of such iconoclastic thinkers as Wilhelm Reich, R. D. Laing, Keith Johnstone, William Blake and Oscar Wilde.

If asked whether this approach and this conceptual framework have provided him with a secure foundation for emotional stability, happiness and flowering creativity, Blow would reply, “Well, so far so good.”

He also writes humorous erotica under the pseudonym Aussiescribbler.

Review by: Burns Well on Feb. 05, 2014 :
Pure wisdom. This writer gives a lot of insight into the workings of the mind and the nature of reality. I've read a lot of Osho's work, and this book is in deep agreement and is also a good supplement to that work.

Excellent book. I bought this book a long time ago, but because of problems with my Kindle Reader, I lost it. I read the free version more recently. It is well written, and delivers up truths in a fashion not usually heard Thanks. Well done. Great job.

This book is dark, deep and brilliantly written. I'm very moved by the author's candidness about mental illnesses, a subject that has become extinct in our conversations and dealings. Here is a person who reached deep inside himself and spilled his soul out onto each page... and he did it so eloquently. I applaud him for bringing me to tears.
