For those who study or participate in that broad sweep of alternative religious movements that have gone under the rubrics of human potential, New Age, or just 'spirituality, ' this is a must-read."

Conclusion: It was a job, but the value of the content -- even with the above language problems with maybe 1/3 of it -- makes it worth the struggle. Maybe the fact that I'm only a college-educated reader and not a History of Religion specialist explains my problems with the language. I believe a re-edit would make this a 5-star-plus book.
