  • Gurdjieff's aim in writing the Third Series was, "to assist the arising in the mentation and in the feelings of the reader, of a veritable, nonfantastic representation not of that illusory world which he now perceives, but of the world existing in reality."Just from that quote, one can tell two things: first: Gurdjieff aimed high. Second, he is an abstruse writer. Add on top of that, that his writings in the three series were written in Russian, Turkish, and who-knows-else-what, and it is easy t [...]


  • Near entirely codswallop; gibberish. Some of the most ineffectual religious writing I've ever endured. The writing is so childish that you can barely restrain yourself from skimming through it in disgust.


  • Il libro è scritto male, soprattutto se paragonato ad "Incontri con uomini straordinari". Non lo consiglio come prima lettura poiché il significato della lettura, oltre ad essere esoterico, dunque nascosto è anche a mio parere esposto male. Non si può non essere colpiti dalle eccessive lamentele dell'autore sul suo stato di salute, lamentele che però sono volte a far comprendere marcatamente un insegnamento e non invece ad esternare futilmente una condizione di salute a posteriori. Dopo un' [...]


  • Is spiruality that difficult to understand? This book is nothing more than the rants and suffering of a crazy person. He constantly thinks and analyses his situation to understand his suffering. He constantly sets goals to write and teach what he has learned in live. But he didnt learn anything! He suffers his whole life because of his thinking and analysing and the goals he thinks he must set for himself to give his suffering a purpose. These rants of this crazy person wil teach you how your th [...]

  • Having finished this book I have now completed reading Gurdjieff's All and Everything trilogy. I very much enjoyed Beelzebub's Tales and Meetings With Remarkable Men but I didn't enjoy this book as much. I liked reading about his journey to the US and his problems with Orage but the book did not have anything specific that I could grasp onto and put into practice.


  • This is the third book in the All and Everything trilogy.A combination of autobiography and a series of talks. Not the book promised to readers at the end of Meetings with Remarkable Men, but interesting in any event.




  • The explanation of why life is only real when I am is what makes this an interesting book You see it depends on what you mean by "real", of course.
