      I was so excited when I heard this book was coming out. I'm a huge "Dwight Schrute" fan, & when I heard that Rainn Wilson wrote a book combining spirituality, art, & what it means to be human, it immediately caught my interest. This book is a quick read, but gives you lots to think about. It also gave me ideas on things I could do to inspire myself! A lot of the questions asked in this book will really make you think about WHY you think & believe the way you do. I love to delve into [...]

    • Staci Estel says:

      I've just recently started exploring the SoulPancake website, and decided to buy the book because I liked the idea behind it. It's not necessarily a book that requires a lot of reading - which could be a good thing. SoulPancake provides you with thought-provoking quotes and prompts that should make you ponder life's questions. While being a bookworm certainly has its benefits, SoulPancake makes me realize the importance of finding the beauty in life by taking action, making decisions, and diggin [...]

    • MacKenzie Abernethy says:

      The book is divided into 9 catagories:- The brain & the soul- Art & creativity- Experiences & emotions- Love, sex, & relationships- Virtues & vices- Introspection, reflection, & identity- God & religion- Life, death, & livingSections are “kicked off” by noteworthy contributors including David Lynch, Justin Vernon, and Josh Ritter. It’s difficult to decide what I enjoyed most about SoulPancake, between fascinating quotes, facts, artwork, and graphic design - [...]

    • Luke says:

      It's hard to give an accurate star rating to thisIt's more about what you get out of it.It's about learning and being more open to the world. It's a book about spirituality and individualism, so if you aren't into that, you won't find this very interesting.

    • Kim says:

      Ugh. I was so excited to read this and so disappointed with it once I finished. Despite its promise of exploring "big questions," this book was trite, arrogant, and not at all illuminating. The best part was the artwork.

    • Leslie says:

      Less of a "read" and more of a thought provoking romp for a rainy afternoon. You could literally open this up to any page and find something to think about for quite a long while.

    • (Peter) says:

      short snippets of thoughtfulness. Engaging, provocative, funny. A primer for anyone aiming to become more reflective, or a companion for anyone who is naturally reflective

    • Antonio Gallo says:

      "SoulPancake"- "La panacea dell'anima". Anima o animo? La panacea? Cos'è? Un anti-libro, un iper-libro, un non-libro, per guarire tutti i mali. Ecco, sto cercando di recensire un libro che libro non è, ma che può essere tutto questo ed altro. Dopo di averlo visto e rivisto online, me lo sono fatto arrivare in versione cartacea da in poche ore da Los Angeles, California. Nella presentazione si dice, (sta scritto letteralmente), è stato "handycrafted" - "fatto a mano". Dopo di averlo confezio [...]

    • Lil Old Bookworm says:

      A great book to inspire you to think, to feel, to explore, and to broaden your horizons. I borrowed this from the library but I just might go out and buy it for myself; this is the kind of book that begs to be reread and analyzed again and again.

    • Lisa Jones says:

      Absolutely in love with this book! I read a borrowed copy from the library so I can't wait to own it so I can do all the "work" in the book. I so needed this in my life!! I'm ready for SoulPancake 2!

    • Raymond Lewis says:

      I found it lacking in conviction and scientific rigor, but my younger self would have eaten it up.

    • Devin Mobley says:

      I would definitely recommend this to any creative. Makes for a perfect coffee table book.

    • Amy Bushmeyer says:

      I plan to use ideas from this book with my High School students. Great inspiration!

    • Igor says:

      You get what you expect from this book. There are more subjects that are covered with nice illustrations, questions and quotes from famous people. Most of the questions make you think about the subjects that are dealing with. Before every chapter there is small interview with some famous person or friend of the authors. The idea is original and interesting.

      Bound: Get Fortified!SunPost Weekly December 30, 2010 | John Hoodbit/fqmLWvThis Year, Make Yourself a SoulPancakeForget New Year’s resolutions. Not only do they generally wear off with the year’s first hangover, but they’re really more akin to regret than to initiative. I mean, it’s highly unlikely you’ll be resolving to do something that you’re happy about not doing the year before, right? Right. Ditto the inverse. Nobody vows to stop doing what they’re proud to have done. Besides [...]

    • Mike Sheehan says:

      This book offers so much. There's tons of activities designed to be eye-opening, mind expanding mental exercises. There's even two separate lists of things to try once a week for a whole year (that's 104 activities in all). Some are little things, some are bigger, and are all challenging in different ways. This is definitely a book that improves upon further reading. I most certainly have to go back and complete all the written activities or act them out, what ever's called for. Many of them see [...]

    • karenbee says:

      I picked this up because: pretty cover, SoulPancake name recognition, Rainn Wilson. The intro was promising, and I got excited about reading the book, then I got into the main section and lost interest. I probably should have paged through it before checking it out, but I had the kids with me, and I am less choosy when they're around. SoulPancake is essentially a bunch of exercises designed to help you explore some of life's more interesting (chewy) questions -- what's your idea of God, why are [...]

    • Patrice Sartor says:

      I didn't read all of it, but I flipped through each page and read most of the quotes and things. I like the idea, though I'm not sure about the execution. SoulPancake is divided into a number of different section (such as art, love, religion, & technology). Within each you'll find relevant quotes, stories, suggestions, ideas, and/or activities to help you further your knowledge or personal growth, or whatever, in those categories.I read many of the quotes aloud to my family, and I think we a [...]

    • Trent Mikesell says:

      I found this a little overwhelming at first, so it took me a bit of time to actually want to read it. It's basically a collection of art, quotes and short pieces (essays and poems) that are supposed to help you examine different aspects of life and death. There are also various questions and activities you can do. I like the idea and some of the quotes were stirring. I even got a great idea for my creative writing class. However, it's hard to really take this seriously as it's written by "Dwight [...]

    • Victoria says:

      Creative. Deep yet playful. "Figure out what it means to be human." Laced with juicy questions & exercises, interesting facts & quotes, and fun trivia -- This is my kind of book. Sample question - "What's one thing you've learned that blew your mind?"Sample exercise - "Don't speak for an entire day. Just listen. Describe your experience." Or another -- Create a small banner and stage a protest using Barbie dolls or Lego people. Sample trivia - "A recent Gallup poll reported that motorist [...]

    • Bec Porch says:

      Although an easy read (I read it cover to cover in one sitting), I feel as though my brain is jam packed with a bubble of creativity and will no doubt pick it up in another couple of months to re-read. I've read A LOT of self development/spiritual/soulful books but this one has to be the most refreshing and fun. I laughed and cried in Rainns intro - he is a genius. I loved the poetry and the fun facts. I loved the worksheets and how certain questions really triggered things in me that I hadn't y [...]

    • Ms. Mofo says:

      I was excited when I saw this book. It seemed like something that would kickstart my imagination and get me busy making art.Unfortunately, I began to notice that the Very Important People quoted throughout the book appeared to be mostly men. So I decided to start counting the number of quotes by men versus quote by women. I came up with 137 men and 23 women. That's pretty crazy. I'm sure there is plenty of bias toward the words of white people over people of color, people of means over people li [...]

    • Rachel says:

      It's a little quirky. There are some thought provoking questions, conversations, etc throughout the book. I wasn't a big fan of the pages of "fill out this graphically designed blank page with your own thoughts" - which seem to be every 10 pages or so of this book (to be fair, I don't like those in any of these deep/creative thinking style books).I did like the thoughtful quotes throughout the book and i liked the conversation-point questions in the book. Would I recommend it to someone who want [...]

    • Raphaelle Yax says:

      Strange selection for a book club read, but interesting concept so far. This one's going to cause some crazy discussions. It think this would be better off sitting on a coffee table or somewhere where you could use it to pick up a dull conversation. The art was my favorite part, although the chapter header interviews/commentary/poetry etc. were awesome. Little bit o' funny, little bit o' serious. Rinse, repeat.

    • Jules Vilmur says:

      I'm a fan of Soul Pancake (the website) so it should be no surprise that I liked the book as well. I picked it up at the library though and realized pretty quickly that it is something I'd much rather own than borrow, as it invites interaction (and perhaps some doodling in the margins). It is the kind of book that you get as much out of as you put into it. Both funny and serious, both light and deep. And oh, Rainn Wilson which is never a bad thing.

    • Colleen Wainwright says:

      I'm forever searching for that next book/class/whatever that will absorb and propel me. This wasn't it, exactly, which is not to say it wasn't a worthwhile read. There were a few thoughtstarter pieces that really got me thinking (Amy Sedaris on creativity, Dr. Drew on addiction, Harold Ramis on God), some nice pieces of art, and several good prompts scattered throughout, some of which I'll ferret away for future use. As a book, it just wasn't my perfect (or perfect-for-now) companion.

    • Mickolus Sundquist says:

      This book is NOT a novel. It would make a great coffee table book or a book club book. I really enjoyed this book. I read it in one evening, but I didn't complete any of the activitiest. I just wanted to get an idea of what the book was all about. The book as great quotes and though provoking questions and facts. This is a book that I'll probably pick up and read every couple years, just to keep my brain thinking about "Life's Big Questions"

    • Brandi Johnson says:

      Overall, this book was good. It was visually appealing; lots of great art and resonating quotes and fun little "expand your mind" exercises. It bordered on being a wee bit too new age-y for me, but that's to be expected with a coffee table book such as this, I suppose. It's more fun to flip through and read in little chunks than it is to take it in with one fell swoop, I think.I do want to reverse pickpocket someone now, though. Good idea, Mr. Wilson.

    • Sarah Stowe says:

      Do you want a fresh outlook on life and the wonders of who we are as humans? Soulpancake will give you ideas, questions and tasks to inspire and spark your imagination. It will get your brain to thinking about things you never believed you would even think of and go to places you have never dreamed of! I have been sharing this book like crazy and there is always reason to pick it up again and again!

    • Bre Barker says:

      I actually dome some of the activities that this book has and it has opened my mind I've also subscribed to there blog and everyday there is always something to keep my mind pondering. My favorite question that was posted quite a long time from now on soulpancake was a question about how would you describe colors to the blind? And at first I had no idea, until I read some of the answers other subscribers posted and it opened my mind.
