Publisher's Synopsis

Iconic newscaster and Buddhist teacher chronicles the 1960s and '70s in India, the Bay Area, and beyond

Join "Scoop" Nisker on a wild ride from West to East and back in his quest for true self and enlightenment. Combining the best elements of memoir and social commentary, Nisker shares his own story to illuminate the spiritual hunger of modern America. His journey begins in Nebraska as the only young man in his small town to be Bar Mitzvah'ed, through the heyday of the Beats and hippies in the Bay Area from his vantage point as a high-profile newscaster, the birth of the environmental movement, and the social and spiritual blossoming of the West. This is a personal, guided tour of the outer and inner movements that joined together into today's mindfulness movement, written by one of the leaders of both.
