Publisher's Summary

Peter Demianovich Ousepnsky (1878-1947) was born in Moscow. He became one of the most important writers on abstract mathematical theory in the early 20th century. Ouspensky searched throughout Europe, Egypt, and the Orient for a teaching that would solve for him the problems of man and the universe. In 1915, in St. Petersberg, he met with George Ivanovitch Gurdjieff, who taught that most humans do not possess a unified mind-body consciousness and thus live their lives in a state of hypnotic "waking sleep", but it is possible to transcend to a higher state of consciousness and achieve full human potential.

This is the record of Ouspensky's eight years of work as Gurdjieff's pupil. It combines the logic of a mathematician with the vision of a mystic.

ended abruptly and didn't cover all I expected

I enjoyed the story telling yet I was expecting the promise of "facts" towards the end. It was discussed in the beginning and not fulfilled. I was hoping the facts would include more information about the Fourth Way Enneagram. just wanted to hear more about it in this context. I was also hoping there would be more information later in the book regarding the earlier mention of controlling planetary influences and the development of living planets. Other than that it was a great book.
