What is Shen Ku? Roughly translated: “Pure Traveler” or “Phantom Passenger.” What exactly is the “art of…?” Mastering the skill and knowledge of practically everything anyone comes across while on Earth, including:

* Tying knots and enhancing sex
* Numerology and self hypnosis
* Herbal therapy and forecasting weather
* Curing nosebleeds and removing stains
* Kung fu and magic tricks
* Isometric and breathing exercises of monks
* Self defense and catching fish

And this is only the beginning.

Irreverent and quirky, serious and 100% straightforward, The Art of Shen Ku explores hundreds of topics from a broad spectrum of life situations, and gives ingeniously simple advice on how to cope with them, overcome them, use them, and benefit from them.
