This book is as good a place as any to start reading Krishnamurti, covering a range of topics about the human condition dealing with such things as fear, loneliness, anger and freedom to name a few. I found the chapter on guilt particularly insightful, but having said that the chapters are all insightful and there is much that can be taken away from this book that could prove useful to a person in their daily living (as indeed all of K’s writings). If I was to take one quote from this book that gave me pause for thought it is this: “Sirs, if you are listening and are not acting, it is like a man who is always tilling but never sowing. It is better not to listen to a truth than to listen without acting, for then it becomes a poison”.
