I just got this - it's four long interviews on five discs. NO lecture material. THIS IS AN INTERVIEW BOX.

A friend of mine ordered this, same story, just the five discs.

My guess is, they were going to include three bonus discs but couldn't get the rights, and it was too late to reprint the box.

It's a good set. I especially enjoyed the autobiographical stuff in the first session. The material on General Semantics, "model-theism", and the Eight Circuits makes more sense in print ("Prometheus Rising"), and I didn't need an hour on Joyce and Pound, but this is an excellent intro to RAW's thought.

As others have said, this set, despite claiming to on the packaging, does not contain any lecture material. It is 5 discs, all between 70 and 77 minutes long, containing an excellent interview with Mr. Wilson. It ranges from his early years in New York, to Joyce, and on into conspiracy theories with tons of other of Bob's thoughts laced in between.

If you're looking to get this set because of the lecture material, it's not here. Apparently it is intact in the cassette edition, if you can get your hands on that (according to another reviewer here). If, however, you're looking for a long, interesting, and amusing interview with Bob go ahead and pick this up.

I hesitate to give this 5 stars only because it does not fulfill what its packaging says it includes. What is included, in my opinion, is excellent material.

I own the tape version which does contain all it claims to. I guess I owe the reviewer below an apology, though I still feel it deserves more then one star, four or five still, but I can understand the disappointment of getting less then you thought also, probably would have bumped a star or two off for me too. I still don't understand how or why what was on four tapes,(which is the length without the two lecture tapes),is now on Five Discs.

ANYWAYS DID EVERYBODY SEE R.A.W. HAS 2 DVDs "MAYBE LOGIC" AND "WILHELM REICH IN HELL".

WRONG(reviewer below) this collection is Five CDs Six hours long total and it does includes three classic Robert Anton Wilson lectures: The Acceleration of Knowledge, The New Inquisition, and Religion for the Hell of It.
I've owned this set for years now and have listened to it many times, at least 5 times; there is just so much here to take in. I don't know why but even without those 3 lectures this set would be worth considerably more then one star. I own the set on tapes and I thought well maybe they left the lectures off for whatever reason when they switched it over to CD format. I checked Sounds True, the publisher, website and they state it is 5 CDs Six hours long and that the three lectures are here and if it's 5 CDs six hours they are.
I don't know why but the reviewer below either bought it used or a mishap at the manufacture and didn't get it all or a has chosen to Lie for whatever reason.
This set isn't a book on tape, it's an interview with 3 lectures by Bob and it's great, informative, funny, mind blowing stuff. I've listened to it again this year and I wont be surprised if I listen to it again next year.

The packaging claims to include the lectures Religion for the Hell of It, The Acceleration of Knowledge, and the New Inquisition, as part of a "collector's edition". The CDs DO NOT contain these lectures. Five CDs are in the package, as the package claims, but the lectures are not there.

The interviews with RAW are excellent.

It says:

This Collectors Edition also includes three classic Robert Anton Wilson lectures: The Acceleration of Knowledge, The New Inquisition, and Religion for the Hell of It.

That's completely untrue. The package only contains an interview with Mr. Wilson.
