Grimm's clear and concise presentation convinced him in a very short time that Gotamo Siddharto's teachings have a solid basis in reality, far from the many cultural distortions that are making up the picture of today's prevailing 'Buddhist' circles.

attempts to forcefully bend Gotamo's teachings into
the framework of contemporary 'Science' as well as the romantic glorificationand
illogical myths around the 'Buddha', he finally compiled more than onehundredandtwenty
chapters (and counting!) for this "Little Purple Notebook On How To Escape
From this Universe".
