It is a book he wrote about experiences he had and his interpretations of them. It is not something I would consider to be the end all be all on spiritual reality and in many ways I disagree with his conclusions and perceptions of what occurred and why. However, many stories are beautiful, moving and parallel experiences I have read about in other's experiences.
I felt like aspects of his thought process were new. Stories were useful in considering things I have read elsewhere. A lot of heart came through the writing which for me is sometimes what I seek most when looking for nourishment from a book like this. It is an international journey and multi-spiritual path journey. He covers Christianity, Sufism, some South American shamanism, Buddhism and a variety of new age perspectives. He doesn't go particularly in depth in any one arena, but the spirit of the people he encounters and the intuitive process through which he navigated his path was for me where the inspiration lay. I felt like I got to briefly meet many of the people he met and hear their ideas and share in the magic of their personalities. I liked it as a conditioning experience in that regard.
If you like this book, you may want to look at 'The Gospel of Ramakrishna' by M which is mostly Hindu based, but has a lot of other influences and just general mysticism. Also, the book 'The Inspired Heart' by Jerry Wennstrom is another great read and you can find videos of him speaking about his journey on youtube. (The basic story is there, but the book is still worth a read for other details and thought processes).
