Format: Paperback
I've read over 25 Krishamurti books, including all the "big ones" like Freedom from the Known, The First and Last Freedom, Total Freedom, Awakening of Intelligence, Flight of the Eagle, Krishmaurti's Notebook, etc., many of which I've read more than once. I've given all of them away to share K's message but kept four of them which I keep as references for focused daily reflection/meditation (as opposed to the meditation of all waking life). The four I've kept are Freedom from the Known, On God, On Right Livelihood, and Education and the Significance of Life (the last one of great relevance to me since I'm an educator). And so now I always recommend (and often give) the first three books on that list I just mentioned to anyone who wants to learn more about K's "teachings." "Freedom from the Known" is the single best, most concise and thorough summary of all K's teachings. "On God" should greatly help anyone who is searching for ultimate reality, Truth, God, Enlightenment, Nirvana, The Meaning of Life, or whatever one wants to call it. No summary will do it justice; you must read it for yourself. "On Right Livelihood" addresses the issue of our daily living, in work, leisure, and even to some degree home life and family relationship, becuase, as K emphasizes, they all should be an integrated whole, not fragmented parts of our lives. "Education and the Significance of Life" is also or relevance to anyone who has children or who teaches; it will transform the way you view childrearing and education. I would say that those four books would be all a person would need to transform one's life; to have a radical revolution in living. Now that being said, why do I still highly recommend "Life Ahead"?Read more ›

5 of 5 people found the following review helpful By dstrom@whaleisle.com on June 21, 1998
Format: Paperback
This is a GREAT book! It's aimed basically at the highschool student, but can be applied to anyone. JK talks about the problems with the way most education is setup, the problems with teachers and parents. He says "Learning is possible only when there is no coercion of any kind...There is coercion through influence, through attachment or threat, through persuazzive encouragement or subtle forms of reward." I reccommend this book highly! Next time you see it in a used bookstore get a copy of it.

Format: Paperback
This book goes into the root of human problems, addressed to young audiences. Spoken with clarity, it can cause a turning point in a young person's life, as it did to me when I read it while at the university.

4 of 4 people found the following review helpful By Shirley Priscilla Johnson TOP 1000 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on October 21, 2005
Format: Paperback
This is a book taken from transcripts of lessons given to Indian students on the meaning of many aspects of life by Krishnamurti.

Many, many topics are covered, for example, what is the root of fear, why are the poor happy and the rich unhappy, what is obedience, and the list goes on with many questions asked and answered according to Krishnamurit's theory on the aspects and meaning of life.

For the person that maybe searching some life answers this would be quite an enlighten read and one that will hold your attention. It is very in-depth and will leave you with much to think about.

1 of 1 people found the following review helpful By Reza Ganjavi on March 3, 2012
Format: Paperback
Great book. One of Krishnamurti classics. In depth discussions of many of the core elements of his teachings. Fantastic. Highly recommended. But read it with a grain of salt -- DO NOT BELIEVE what it says. EXAMINE it for yourself and find out if the things said are true or not. If they are you've found them first hand. If not, you can discard them. It takes patience if this is your first K book, to get familiar to the terminology and the approach...
