Working for corporate America is a miserable experience. Can you escape with your soul intact? Is it possible to live a creatively realized life in corporate America? This book explores these questions with wit, insight and dazzling literary effect. Presented in the style of an illustrated modern-day alchemy book, "Necktie for a Two-Headed Tadpole" examines the creative process in the context of modern corporate living. Creativity, the book makes plain, is a complex alchemy of ideas and impulses rooted in the individual's unique spirit and experience, a reality fundamentally in conflict with the purposes and operational demands of corporate life. This book makes it clear that living and dying at your job every day in the corporate workplace is a problem. The only way to live a creatively realized life in corporate America, in fact, is to get out of corporate America! If you're creative but you're still working for corporate America, then you have to read this book!

Jason Murk is without a doubt extremely bright, perhaps even of genius quality. It is a great sadness to see the gift warped. He smoked one too many funny cigarettes (at least) and stared at far too many "whorling whorlding" vortices (yes, he actually wrote that).

I know, I know.... most of his art is in smug satire - the intentional, post-modern, anti-literary literary deconstructionalist ," take nothing I say seriously though I am intending it very seriously" writing style. His book is intended for "insiders", those that "get-it". He wishes to attain the summit like peak of guru-ism dispensing his truths in conflated phrases that are seemingly nonsense unless you penetrate and prosper.

He describes his journey to a "nervous breakdown" when the activities of his imagination brought him close to losing the distinctions between his imagination and the real world of fast-moving cars that pay no attention to the world of dreams and metaphysical imagining. This "death" became his new birth and he awakened to a sober analysis of the life he was living. Like any good existentialist he decided that life was not authentic and therefore like any good zealot he undertook to find his own leather belt and locust-eating role of a prophet. He did what every creative person (in his thinking) ought to do. He told his corporate boss to shove it and he went off in the desert to live an unwashed (literally), convenience rejecting existence, staring at the blue sky and reveling in his creative juices. It was the supreme triumph of "it's all about me", the mantra of many and the death knell of civilization. All this is conveyed to us in the wrappings of smugly inscrutable, tongue-in-cheek (I suppose) "parables" and "treatises".

If you want to hear a drugged out, pseudo-intellectual who was born out of synch with the hippie generation, then buy the book. But the bottom line is it doesn't take a genius to tell us that corporate America generates pressures on those who pursue its goals. Those pressures can dominate and crush you like a grape. You can be molded by the forces and culture to the point where you discover that something precious is being stifled or has already been killed. There are many ways to deal with this and not all of them include rejecting the whole scene.

Murk is intoxicated with his own drama and is way too quick to project the patterns of his own life into the form of wisdom universally applicable to other souls, sensitive or not. I have heard better philosophy from a gushing drunk leaning on a bar in one of the many establishments I have visited. I have even contributed to the genre myself. But when I sobered up I knew that it was just the liquor talking. Murk may have overcome his drug habit, perhaps not, but I am not sure that the recovery is complete.

As we individuate from our nuclear family, we find that all that is told us is not always true; or often, even apply to us at all! Jason, on his journey, though well qualified for the business world, finds he is stifled in the environment as he goes into the accepted medium for earning your living and using your college preparations. From needing 'help' (with artificial substances), to ability to see his

inner/spiritual being without 'assistance' is a reflection of his growth and understanding. Some find it in music, environment, religion - and others in the intrepid details of Splendor Solis. I am reminded of my own journey as I read this.

Great stuff and inspirational to it's readers.

Delve into this delightful book for a wonderful trip of discovery with the author- in search of his natural and untrammeled self-while, at the same time trying to throw off the bonds of a stultifying corporate career.

Vivid imagery, scintillating prose, plus, insights into the wellsprings of creativity.

This is my favorite book... its pure genius. To keep it simple, life is a beautiful thing and no one can describe it better than Jason Murk.
