decent read. interesting scope and limiting by design. was hoping for more of an "anthology of mysticism"-type vibe but that is not really that type of book either. still worthwhile.

it is a short read but i read slowly & it seemed to drag on for such a short book. there seems to be some overlap to w/ the Catholic confessions. some of them seem repetitive & typical. its interdisciplinary but some chapters have really short entries by one or two religious figures.

glad i read i stumbled u
Excellent collection of first-hand religious experience, straight out of Musil and James.
