My copy is worn out since it was the first philosophy book I purchased when I was 13 years old (the 80's). Incredible human being. He influenced one of my all-time favorite teachers, Erich Schiffman. His writing is very approachable and succinct.

Great book to get yourself starting to think about how perceptually biased we all are, Krishnamurti lays it on the line. ( )

I read this at age 15, while ditching P.E. classes at school. Fair to say that it contributed significantly to my dropping out of school immediately, a choice by which I've not suffered in the least. ( )

Krishnamurti is brilliant. Whatever your religious beliefs or philosophical orientation, you should read him. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0060916095, Paperback)

-The material contained in this volume was originally presented in the form of talks to students, teachers and parents in India, but its keen penetration and lucid simplicity will be deeply meaningful to thoughtful people everywhere, of all ages, and in every walk of life. Krishnamurti examines with characteristic objectivity and insight the expressions of what we are pleased to call our culture, our education, religion, politics and tradition; and he throws much light on such basic emotions as ambition, greed and envy, the desire for security and the lust for power – all of which he shows to be deteriorating factors in human society.’From the Editor’s Note-Krishnamurti’s observations and explorations of modern man’s estate are penetrating and profound, yet given with a disarming simplicity and directness. To listen to him or to read his thoughts is to face oneself and the world with an astonishing morning freshness.’Anne Marrow Lindbergh
