This was a GREAT book (size-wise and content-wise), but every word was worth it. It is written from the heart and shows a different way to look at our world. A book from someone who has looked deep into his own soul and in doing so, into the dark soul of our civilization.
It brings back to the forefront of consciousness the ancient perspective of community and communication with our surroundings. It gently forces us to question our unconscious assumptions.
It is definitely worth reading especially if you are questioning what you are doing in your life and would like to speed your transition. His writing is deep and thoughtful. It is best to read it for yourself.
