This book is mostly digression. As other reviewers have noted, the author spends at least as much time trying to contort Swami into the thinking of supporters of the perennial philosophy, to which Abhishiktananda was never exposed! I do understand that this book is part of a series by advocates of that tradition, but if you are going to present a book that purports to be about Swami’s thought, then spending a significant amount of time covering other, even unrelated, thinkers is a waste of the reader’s time. Don’t waste yours on this book!

Manil I was going to say the same thing and see that I was already beaten by other reviewers. The book is valuable only for the quotations and extracts of Abhishiktananda's own writings, Oldmeadow is annoying.
