A radio playlist could easily follow John Lennon's ':Mind Games': with ':Do Ya Think I'm Sexy.': But comparing the two, it becomes obvious that Lennon had more in common with the great thinkers of any age than with the songwriters who were his contemporaries. Cynical Idealist reveals, for the first time, the spiritual odyssey of this extraordinary man. Out of a turbulent life, from his troubled, working-class childhood throughout his many roles -- Beatle, peace advocate, social activist, househusband -- Lennon managed to fashion a philosophy that elevates the human spirit and encourages people to work, individually and collectively, toward a better world. Like Socrates, Lennon wanted to stimulate people to think for themselves. ':There ain't no guru who can see through your eyes,': he sings in ':I Found Out.': ':Cynical Idealist': beautifully articulates this and the other lessons John Lennon passed along through his songs and through the example of his life.
