Summary

"Get to know Gary Busey, who once told me he was an angel in an earth suit. Indeed he is, giving us messages he’s received from on high, messages that inspire and support us in living a beautiful fulfilled life. Get to know my dear friend Gary Busey, read Buseyisms." (Jeff Bridges, actor, The Big Lebowski and True Grit)

Words of wisdom and incredible life stories, written and read by Gary Busey in his unique Buseyisms.

"What is a Buseyism? I take the letters that spell a word to create a definition for the word in the truth of its deeper, dimensional meaning. I weave in my personal anecdotes along with my musings on how I live life successfully according to my experiences. Who am I, a genius, a crazy madman, to give advice? This is not advice. I am sharing the life lessons I learned while surviving the ups and downs of almost 50 years in Hollywood, a near fatal motorcycle accident, a drug overdose, two divorces, bankruptcy and cancer in the middle of my face. I may turn concepts you usually believe in upside down with my bizarre stories, but that comes with the dinner. These are my life lessons, my B.I.B.L.E. - Basic Instructions Before Leaving Earth." (Gary Busey)

Inspired and moved!

I thought this book was just going to be "Buseyisms". But it was way more than that! I found myself not wanting to stop listening.
It was an extra treat to have him narrate it. I have always liked Gary Busey's acting. He plays every character so naturally. I loved hearing about his life and the behind the scenes stories. Quite unexpectedly, this audio book made me laugh and it made me cry. I was deeply inspired with his chapter in fear and faith. I find him to be a much needed "beautiful spirit" in a sometimes awful world!

Uniquely Busey

God continues to Bless Gary Busey with such unique talent and wisdom shared in his story, which I found inspiring and very entertaining. His narration makes him feel like a close friend, funny and sensitive, even when it is brutally honest!

Good Advice with life story

I enjoyed Gary’s rendition of his life story. I call it a rendition because he stated that not everything in it wasn’t the exact truth. While he told what he wants to reveal, I felt as though I was getting good lessons as in Aesop’s Fabled disguised as Buseyisms. I enjoyed the book Chapters were short and to the point making listening easy. I finished the book in one day and applied some Buseyisms to my own life.
