5.0 out of 5 stars Refreshingly Insightful
This book is a transcript of a retreat or workshop that Mr de Mello presented shortly before his death. It is excellent and is the sort of presentation that one is likely to read many times over the course of one's life.

1.0 out of 5 stars Really disappointing
I am really disappointed with this book as there is nothing in here I haven't previously read in Anthony de Mello's other book 'Awareness'. Don't buy this one, buy the other if you're truly ready to face up to some real home truths.

This book is a transcript of a retreat or workshop that Mr de Mello presented shortly before his death. It is excellent and is the sort of presentation that one is likely to read many times over the course of one's life. It is, as another reviewer has said, a clear revelation of how we have been taught to be unhappy, by being conditioned to react in a negative and often distressing way to people and events in our daily life. Fundamentally this is all based upon craving and attachment and to resistance and aversion, perhaps best exemplified by our desire for approval or, at the very least, for the avoidance of disapproval.
The book is a very effective accompaniment to two other superb books by the same author - 1) Awareness and 2) The Way To Love. It is a must-read!

5.0 out of 5 stars A book full of wisdom, 31 Aug 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is one of those precious books invaluable to anyone who really wants to see life as it is. To make you aware of how indoctrinated you are. How brainwashed. And how to free yourself of all this brainwashing. How to come back in tune with life as it really is. Strong stuff!

Very good book! It is necessary to give time to understand the deep contents. And when arriving to the end, begining again!
