Essentially, these are self help books that turn you into an eccentric happy person rather than a normal s***ty person. They should be required reading for anyone with the ability to give a damn about high minded bulls***
This is a set of essays, strung together in a manner that will make you think. His style as an essayist is engaging. In fact, I enjoy his essays more than his novels. Even when I disagree with Wilson (which might very well happen if you read with an open mind), I still find something to think about and consider.
I think that his books are designed to be mind-openers, not mind closers...I actually met a RAW-Dogmatic guy once, and after I finished laughing, tried to show him that (in my opinion) he missed the message.
This seems to me to be a fantastic book. I hope you enjoy it, too.
Though he glosses over certain concepts that could merit either their own chapter, or at least a one-line clarification, most fans of UFO's, Secret Societies, Hoaxes, as well as those who enjoy studying the credulous should find endless enjoyment in this insightful, funny, and sometimes touching book from the man who may be dead, and the posthumous victim of a hoax (of himself).
Wilson is a philosopher who can see the beauty AND the B.S. of life. He intelligently explains having mystical expericences as a STARTING point to exploration, not a new dogma to shove down people's throats. In my opinion, no other writer is better in explaining and exposeing how the world is with more honesty, knowledge and HUMOR. ( This applies to litterally ALL his books, not just CT III)
To my knowledge this is the last book Wilson has released. I sure hope he writes another before he "moves on". His works have literally transfromed me into, I think, a far wiser person. Hopefully for you as well.
