I LOVE this book. I think it's utterly brilliant, a total eye-opener. I can't recommend this strongly enough. I think if you are in the right frame of mind, this is a book that could change your life dramatically.

I really enjoyed this book. 'The Backdoor to Enlightenment' was two-fold for me as a wonderful modern/historical mystery, and a book full of fabulous details and insight about spirituality.
