    1. This is a sensible book about the spiritual path, and this is a rare thing. He spells out the many pit falls on the way and gives an outline of the whole journey. He doesn't refrain from writing about the difficulties likely to be met along the path, while at the same time he gets across the idea that it is the only worthwhile trip.

P.M.'s voice in this book is engaging, linear, down to earth but not simplistic, it's analytic [...]
