Guy Finley is one of those treasures that everyone should get to know. I gave this book 5 stars, because I think it conveys very important concepts to live a happy, fulfilling life. Guy's writing style is a bit "quirky" and repetitive, and some find it a bit off-putting. I enjoy reading him, though, because I have heard his talks both on tape and in person, and can hear his voice when I read his books. So, I have an advantage.
If you really want to get into some great material, get his tapes or CDs. Warning: they are highly addictive!! His talks are wonderful, and full of incredible metaphors, stories, and passion about what we are about, and how we can attain so much more through mastery of our selves.
Guy Finley can best be described as a self-taught master of a wisdom tradition that incorporates the work of Vernon Howard, Gurdjieff, Ouspensky, and Krishnamurti, into a contemporary blend of thought that is not New Age at all, but transcends the superficial and aims much higher. He is iconoclastic and insightful, challenging and subtle.
Anyone who has the opportunity to gainn access to his work, whether in book form or tapes of his powerful talks, should do so.
