Video Trailer: Ken La Salle’s “Climbing Maya”

What is success? What do we strive for and why? What is it we chase after, day after day, and inevitably judge the value of our lives against? Do the old answers of career and money really hold up? Faced with unemployment, the impending death of one friend, and self-destruction of another, Ken La Salle begins his search for the meaning of success. It’s a search that explores why we still crave success that in the face of inevitable death could be nothing more than Maya, and helps us push through all of our preconceived notions to a concept few understand.

You can find Climbing Maya, a philosophical memoir by Ken La Salle, is available on and Smashwords.
