The Abide Guide

By Oliver Benjamin and Dwayne Eutsey

Life has a lot of ins, lot of outs, lot of whathaveyous.  Isn’t it time you chill out, man, and learn to live like The Dude?


A commercial flop in its initial release in 1998, The Big Lebowski has since emerged as a cult phenomenon complete with an annual fan festival, midnight movie screenings, and even its own religion. Now the founder of the Church of the Latter-Day Dude shares his own prophetic insights, along with the advice of his top disciples, to show readers how to lead a more relaxed, laid-back life based on the ways of Jeffrey “The Dude” Lebowski. Packed with tips, investigations, and far-out facts related to the movie, The Abide Guide holds the answers to all life’s questions. The book shows the easiest way to be Dude-like in a chaotic world, and it includes moral and inspirational life lessons from key scenes in the movie, the seven habits of highly lazy yet totally successful Dudes, and great Dudes from history. Now when life throws a gutter ball, it’s easy to just ask, What would the Dude do?
