A more critical approach would also have challenged his ideas about hierarchy and kingship- not to attack the man, but simply to look at potential problems in his ideas, e.g. the corrupting effect that power has had on all priesthoods throughout history.
As regards the man himself, I wanted to know much more. This is after all supposed to be a biography. JM was a product of the English upper class, Eton, Oxbridge, the Army- one would have anticipated a marriage to a debutante and a quiet life in the Home Counties. Instead, by his 30s he was hanging out with the Stones, Michael X, and Mike Eavis, proclaiming Blake's vision of Albion and teaching landscape mysteries in a Free School in Notting Hill, as his worldly inheritance evaporated. What internal and external factors influenced this transformation? His astrological chart would have been an appropriate inclusion in this book.
The many photos of Earth Mysteries types having picnics were of little interest. A few diagrams of sacred geometry of Stonehenge, Glastonbury, etc, would have been more useful.
Paul Screeton wrote a great book in "Quicksilver Heritage", but someone else needs to write John Michell's biography. "From Atlantis to Avalon and Beyond", the biography of JM's friend Tony Roberts, is a much better book.
