With some short introductory comments in each section, I felt like this was a good way to get the general overview of the main ideas.

This book was dense, but insightful. I appreciated the deeper dive into de Chardin's fiery beliefs and his hope for humanity and the planet.

A very good selection of his writings and any book involving Ursula King's knowledge is worth reading.
