This book is a lot more than her nail biting story of escape, the struggle to fit into a new and alien society and her eventual success. This book is an expression of her commitment to making available another point of view from which people worldwide could look and think about environmental issues.
The title of this book, “You, asshole, YOU caused it!” is an expression she loves, that belongs to a man she loves: Werner Erhard, the founder of Est Training. In its pages you can see the far-reaching effects of the Ontological education, which was at the foundation of the Est Training and now at the foundation of all Landmark courses.
The perspective from which this book is written is unique in the sense that it belongs to someone who for over 30 years has had her life sourced by this education.
Ontology (the science of being) deals with awareness, and awakening; awareness has nothing to do with acquiring intellectual information. It is rather an experience, like the difference between knowing the fire is hot and experiencing the heat itself if you put your hand in the fire.
