I bought this book just because of the very cool name. It floated around in my computer bag for a month or so. I finally started reading it and am blown away with it so far. It deals a lot with Maslow's hierarchy if needs. For a random book I picked up for silly reasons at Half Price Books I couldn't ask for more. I found a copy of Assagioli's "Psychosynthesis" at Half Price books. I am going to read that next and then re-read "The Act of Will"
