In our view, this autobiography is one of the most important books ever written about
enlightenment because it contains an extraordinarily precise description of what
the author did that led to his waking up. This portion of the book may be the clearest
and most informative depiction of sadhana, of spiritual practice, that has ever been written.
The author shares with us the whole concrete experience so we are able to see not only what he did
but also how it felt. We also see the ferocious intensity and motivation that were
required to make the practice work. He put his whole life aside to focus on this one
thing, his sadhana.
It's a big book, written in an engaging, candid style, with many other interesting
sections. We recommend it highly.
