The Dice Man
Jul 28, Nick Hylands-white added it. I wouldn’t say that this was a handbook for dice-living as it is touted.
It is more a collection of pop philosophical musings on aspects of the meaning of life. It is amusing in places, and their are some nuggets of thought provoking material amongst the psudo adamm chaff that fills many of the chapters. For die hard fans no pun intended of the novels only. May 12, Juan rated it really rhinegart it.
Filled with, to me pretty crazy advice on how to live the “dice life” chock full of quotes and information of Rhinehart’s novels. All enlivened with illustrations, little poems, anecdotes and witticisms this is great as a companion volume to the books but is also a lot of fun for the adan light hearted reader who would just use it for randomly “dipping” into. Interesting, subversive and subjective was a good read overall.

Luke Rhinehart is the pen name of the author George Cockcroft. George Cockcroft was born in the United States, son of an engineer and a civil servant.
Subsequently he received a PhD in psychology, also from Columbia.
The Dice Man by Luke Rhinehart
He married his wife, Ann, on June 30, He has three children. After obtaining his PhD, he went into teaching.
During his years as a university teacher he taught, among other things, courses in Zen and Western literature. He first floated the idea of living according to the casting of dice in a lecture.
The reaction was reportedly of equal parts intrigue and disgust, and it was at this point he realized it could become a novel. Cockcroft began experimenting with dice a long time before writing The Dice Manbut this made progress on the novel rather slow. Soon afterwards, he was engaged in the creation of a dice center in New York City.
Inhe was involved in a round-the-world voyage in a large trimaran ketch. Later, he spent some time in a sailboat in the Mediterranean, where he taught English and from there moved to a former Sufi retreat on the edge of a lake in Canaan, New York. On 1 Augustat the age of 80, Cockcroft arranged for his own death to be announced.
It was later revealed as a joke.
