All that I could concretely gather, from the book, was that Gnosticism is about feeling good. This does not tell me as much as a headline might. Gnosticism has played a significant role in society, and I would like to have been given a better understanding of this 'way of life', and why it could or should be acceptable, in the face of more complete (certainly more concise) philosophies.
Another distraction, in the writing, is its tendency to market the philosophy, by its commentary on well known people who think gnosticism provides an 'answer'. The commitments of others seem unrelated to the needs of someone, like me, trying to understand the essentials of the philosophy.
