Red Hawk speaks honestly and simply. He has managed to present some of the most profound workings of the `Fourth Way' / Gurdjieff insights elegantly and accessibly.
As a first introduction, I think this could become a classic. Anyone already in idiocy would appreciate Red Hawks down-to-earth offerings as a wonderful aide-memoir. In brief, he has written an understandable guide to the foundations and insights for becoming a mature human being. He offers ways to develop an ability to notice ourselves (and others)what it is to notice, and what it is to become a person of Awareness and Attention. But don't take my word for it, only you will know from your own direct experience if I, Red Hawk or anyone else in this world have anything worth taking notice of, which is the very subject matter of this book.

-ruthless self honesty
There were some gems dotted throughout the book and I loved most of the poems ( written by the author)
Well done Red Hawk.
Recently I stumbled across this book and gave it a try and was astounded to find that it belongs with a tiny, tiny minority of books on spirituality: it is genuinely useful.
The chapters present not so much a practice as an attitude towards practice, which is simple, clear, honest and realistic. Right from the start the author makes it clear that serious work of this kind comes at huge personal cost. This is a refreshing change from the vast majority of 'spiritual' books that only tout the benefits of spiritual practice in order to sell their books.
Each chapter is accompanied by a poem by the author. As poetry these put me in mind of the works of Charles Bukowski: not particularly impressive in terms of language craft, but valuable for their powerful impact.
