I found the authors style of writing to be intrusive and patronising, all in all, an anoying read. Could have been better...in so many ways!
Indeed those who take the time to read the first chapter of the book will find there a map upon which they can first plot their own coordinates and then proceed through the labarynth of mystical teachers with at least a basic understanding of what they are and 'where they are coming from'.
This book does more than it says it does, it provides a comprehensive directory of teachers AND an innovative model with which we can better understand not only their paths (or lack of), but also our own. We can view ourselves in a new light now, as hot/structured for example, and find teachings in places we would never have thought to look before.
A great piece of work, if you don't like it, sell it on to someone.
The work is unique and thus difficult to compare to anything else published in this field, as the work involved dwarfs anything previously published. Good stuff.
