This Audiofy audiobook chip packs Tom Parker's full 7 hour reading of 'The Dharma Bums' on a tiny memory card. A single Audiofy audiobook chip, hardly larger than a stamp, holds a complete digital audiobook, and saves the last listening position automatically, unlike CDs. With an SD memory card slot or low cost adapter like those for digital cameras this Audiofy audiobook chip can be played on Microsoft Windows and Apple Macintosh desktop computers or laptops (Microsoft Windows XP/2000/Me/98, or Apple Mac OS X 10.3.9 and above) or transferred to Apple iPod media players. Audiobook chips also move seamlessly to most Palm OS and Pocket PC handheld PDAs with SD expansion slots, as well as Treo and Windows Mobile 'smartphones' (Palm OS 5.2 or Windows Mobile 2002 and above)... Two ebullient young men are engaged in a passionate search for Dharma, or truth. Their major adventure is the pursuit of the Zen way, which takes them climbing into the high Sierras to seek the lesson of solitude, a lesson that has a hard time surviving their forats into the pagan groves of San Francisco's Bohemia with it's marathon wine drinking bouts, poetry jam sessions, experiments in 'yabyum,' and similar non ascetic pastimes. This Autobiographical novel appeared just a year after the author's explosive On the Road put the Beat generation on the literary map and Kerouac on the best seller lists. The same expansiveness, humor, and contagious zest for life that sparked the earlier novel ignites this one.
