The chap at the end of that video, Tom Shadyac, is a very remarkable personality. He made millions of dollars producing and directing Hollywood movies (Ace Ventura: Pet Detective, Liar Liar, Bruce Almighty). Then back in 2007 he met with a nasty bicycle accident, recovered, sold his possessions, moved to a trailer park, and changed his view on life and society.
Subsequently he produced and directed two documentaries (I Am and Happy) and wrote the book “Life’s Operating Manual”.
The book provides a new perspective on life and the society we live in and is written in a very unique style as a dialogue between FEAR and TRUTH.
It is quite thought provoking in providing new perspectives. Recommended to anyone who wants to take a step further into their knowing of the truth (or untruth or fears) about life.
