If you really like Bill Murray, you'll probably like this book. I liked him less after reading the book (he's kind of a jerk). The final 108 numbingly boring pages of the book contained a synopsis/critique of each one of his movies. Every. Single. One.

I have a confession. I'm not a movie watcher. Bill Murray, therefore, is just a trivia answer for me. The reason I picked up this book is that the title had the word "Tao" in it. The book did not disappoint. Bill Murray is an excellent example of a person living his life according to Lao Tze's Tao Te Jing. For example "There are many ways to be a spontaneous free spirit. One of them is to act before you think; throw up your body into the moment and let your mind catch up." I enjoyed reading the book and might even model my life on him in some ways. The last chapter, "The films of Murray," gave a good summary of Bills roles and acting methods.

This book is an opportunity to hangout with Bill Murray. Full of stories of Bill Murray's off screen antics, never told stories of Murray during filming. And most entertaining are the stories of chance encounters with Bill Murray. And a glimpse on how we might all strive to live.

Enjoyable book about the exploits of Bill Murray outside of his movies.

Fun and interesting read but I believe I would have enjoyed it more if it would have been an autobiography. Fun fact: Bill Murray is taller than you think. 6' 2" Although the book says 6'3" or 6'4". I thought about it and realized they were right. Taller than I thought.
