Aldous Huxley (1894–1963) is the author of the classic novels Brave New World, Island, Eyeless in Gaza, and The Genius and the Goddess, as well as such critically acclaimed nonfiction works as The Perennial Philosophy and The Doors of Perception. Born in Surrey, England, and educated at Oxford, he died in Los Angeles, California.
I have read this book many times and find it more and more profound, interesting and challenging.
All religious and transcendental experience point the same way and Huxley proves it in his work; a transcendental and enlightening insight on this subject.
I would recommend this book to anyone who wants to be in touch with the Divine and grow in the spiritual life.
