There are two types of books for people who wish to fathom the secrets of spiritual evolution. The first continue to repeat verbatim the old maxims, quoting most of the great thinkers of the past. The second category offers something new, or at least a new way of looking at the eternal truths that seemingly need to be continually rediscovered.
This book belongs to the first category. Therefore, for those who only just noticed that there is more to life than food and sex, this books is good fodder. For those who have already taken the first few steps along the evolutionary tract of conscious living, this book has relatively little to offer. It certainly does not decode anything that one cannot decode on ones own. To suggest that Leonardo's principle claim to immortality is, apparently, his obsession with the androgynous nature of man, hardly does him justice. There is a great deal more to the duality of the material reality than sexual orientation.
Pity, I suspect that Mr. Gelb has an excellent brain, vast experience, and could contribute something of his own.
