Naysayers will probably never change their minds, believers don't need to. So defending HPB is somewhat futile, if you are trying to convert anyone. It is helpful for skeptical people to take note of the many outstanding, respected people, many literary people, who were quite enamored by HPB, and knew in their hearts that she was telling a great truth about humanity's past present and future. I was amazed to read the excerpt from Vonnegut's article in McCall's magazine, wherein he extends, in his own fashion, a bit of qualified support for HPB. Certainly most people must recognize that the orthodox world, with many well-intended folks, some decidedly not well-intended in my estimation, has utterly failed to shed much light on the reality of our world, and life in general. Blavatsky is the opening of the door into the world of reality; ancient, timeless, attainable wisdom and attendant perfection with its proper use. Mankind's needs her insights more today that ever, and while she opened the door the Masters, further light has been given through the books of the Saint Germain Series. I recommend then to anyone wanting to have something that will take them to a place where expanded service to life is possible, where personal spiritual attainment is clearly laid out for anyone to try.

This book is for people who want to know about the life of Blavatsky and her impact on many thinkers and movements of the late nineteenth century and beyond. Cranston pulls from vast numbers of historical records to provide a picture of HPB's life and experience. Cranston has been praised by those far more credible than either myself or the shallow negative reviewer on Amazon's site. Academics and experts who praise and/or draw their reasearch from this book include: Brian Weiss, Elisabeth kubler-Ross, Nicholas Goodrick-Clarke. For those who are willing to read Cranston's fascinating, comprehensive and thought-provoking work will be well rewarded with new insights into the past that continues to influence our times. Thank you Sylvia Cranston.
