    I recommend the audio book WITH The Integral Vision by Ken Wilber

    This is a great introduction to Ken Wilber's philosophy.
    It does assume you are a bit familiar with his work, so I recommend also getting a little book with it that is an even more basic introduction. It is a small and very enlightening book called The Integral Vision. In it you will see the graphs he will refer to in the audio book and an explanation of his developmental chart.

    I also would like to mention that a lot of what he is talking about in these books was new to me so I benefited greatly from the fact that I could put the track on repeat until I got it and then go on when I was ready. Or take a group of tracks such as a chapter and put them in a play-list on the computer and mp3 player.

    Together the two books are a perfect set and you really do need the little blue book, The Integral Vision by Ken Wilber unless you are already very familiar with his terminology and cosmology.

    This Will Shift Your Consciousness Forever

    How does a Seeker of knowledge download 2,000 plus years of human history in a few days of reading? Easy. Read or listen to Ken Wilber's brilliant synopsis neatly packaged into an elegant model of everything. The "Integral Model" will change the way you view your own life challenges and the world's enormous geopolitical problems forever. I highly recommend this book and think every politician and college student in America should have this book in their collection.

    Just Excellent

    Ken Wilber shows us that although we all take different roads in life, we share a common direction in our development and evolution. He brings together a vast number of theories and observations and organizes them into one theory. It is quite amazing! Wilber has written many books on this subject but this is the one I would recommend people to read first. If you'd like a shorter, more simplified but extremely well-organized / well-articulated book that covers this material, I strongly suggest 'The Ever-transcending Spirit' by Toru Sato. It also discusses practical implications of these ideas that make you feel like you could have saved a lot of hassle and confusion if you read it earlier in your life. Both Wilber and Sato are clearly two of the most advanced thinkers of our time.
