I can thoroughly recommend this book. It is well edited but the Seymour articles are just superb. Not only are these articles well written, well reasoned and full of detail but they display a level of learning lost in today's modern world. OK - so he is a little opinionated at times but when put in the context of his times, its easy to understand why. There is meditation material in this book to last years. Thanks Dolores for bringing this material to the light of day.
How I wish I had come across this years ago. I am truly astounded - hyperbole deliberate - at the clarity of Colonel Seymour's insights and teachings. It's a book I've been waiting for, and did not know it. I really appreciate Dolores Ashcroft-Nowicki for publishing these essays, and for her deft editing and commentary.
