    This book is a holistic and synchronizing work for life.The level of detail is really spellbinding .Well.. i am not very good at connecting timelines but it should have been during Gurdjieff's time the electron , neutron discoveries were made but the level of detail in explaining the hydrogen tables and digestive process shows the depth of his knowledge.The commentaries bring science and spirituality very close and that all this was disemminated so many years back makes all other east meets west books primers.

    These 5 volumes provide much food for thought if you are interested in your spiritual psychology. The information is taken from Nicoll's lectures. As is the case with any spiritual teaching, there are layers here that will reveal themselves to you as you deepen your own understanding. It is not something you read and put away. It is something you keep close for the rest of your life. As you grow spiritually, you will find that you can pick up any volume, flip to a page and find something that relates to circumstances you are currently struggling with. These 5 volumes have been on our shelves since 1986. We actually have 3 sets, and two of them are barely hanging together from the wear and tear!

    I will not recommend this book to anyone who is not familiar with what it is about. This is not foundational. It requires not one, but a set of pre-requisites from various streams. It took me 5 months to complete this mammoth! *Review coming soon*

    A must depth and practical work with the Gurdjieff system, astute, inspiring and humbling by turns.

    a fabulous series. Nicoll is for me the most lucid communicator of Gurdjieff's ideas. Nicoll's other books The Mark, and Living Time, are brilliant as well.

    I've been hooked on this series since page one, vol. 1. I'm now finishing up volume 4. So glad to own each volume in hardcover because I'm looking forward to reading them over again and again. I love Nicoll's clear style while delving into hard-to-pin-down ideas in spiritual psychology. And I so appreciate G and O's practical advice on how to help yourself break free from mechanical life at least briefly.

    What a beautiful book, M Nicoll discusses many topics and WOW, any Author listed I would love to meet, But to have a chance to speak to M. Nicoll on the teachings of Ouspensky and Gurdjieff would be very interesting. I really enjoyed the second view too.
