Publisher's Summary

During the mid-'30s in Paris, Gurdjieff drew together four women: Solita Solano, Kathryn Hulme, Alice Rohrer, and Elizabeth Gordon - and formed a special, mutually supporting work group.

In allegory he explained: You are going on a journey under my guidance, an “inner-world journey” like a high mountain climb where you must be roped together for safety, where each must think of the others on the rope, all for one and one for all. You must, in short, help each other “as hand washes hand”, each contributing to the company according to her lights, according to her means. Only faithful hard work on yourselves will get you where I want you to go, not your wishing.

Among themselves they called their foursome “The Rope".

The company around Gurdjieff’s table, his principal teaching site, soon expanded to include Louise Davidson, Margaret Anderson, Georgette Leblanc, and Jane Heap.

So disappointing! This reading is a disaster

It’s such a shame the publisher chose to use this narrator and for them to act out Gurdjieff’s accent. For such an important book and amazing recount of his talks!

The narrator (woman) acts out Gurdjieff’s (man) Russian / middle eastern accent so badly that it’s nearly impossible to understand what Gurdjieff was actually saying. I’ve had to rewind and re-listen to certain parts multiple times because it’s simply not understandable. This should really be removed and re-recorded.

It’s so bad that I can’t even finish it - I’ll have to read the book instead. Such a disappointment. Do better publisher!

Poor performance

I am serious fan of Gurdjieff, the performance is not really good specially the fake Russian accent, I tried to finish the book but couldn’t, will try to buy the paper copy instead.
