    I had no knowledge of Steiner before this reading though I had heard the name. This is a well written, well researched book as I've come to expect from Gary Lachman. I enjoy the way he brings out so much of the person and the times they lived in. Certainly thought provoking.

    hip condescension

    I was hoping for a biography that could enlighten. Not here. I found the hip observations quite appropriate when regarding movie celebrities and the like but very out of place here. For the life of me the only reason for such a dilletantish(sic) work to get published at all is if you are - well - a former bandmember of some astonishingly ground breaking group like that amazing BLONDIE. Sadly, NOT.

    Life shows something for everyman.

    Lachman has done well in treating the mysterious and labyrinthine Steiner fairly. He has written much on such subjects. In ratings, the hardness of task should count, not just the result. So rate Lachman high: he comes so close to an almost unreachable goal. However, he never solves the puzzle(no one ever has) how Steiner, with his gifts, energy and--at last--his contacts, remained on the edge and later almost unknown. A Rudolf Steiner boom is on. Many good books on him appear, including Steiner's own Biography gives a seeker a good background, hard to acquire otherwise. And this background clarifies what rules our world today. An excellent new book divides people into two groups. Book _Mindset_. Two sorts of personality: growth mindset vs fixed states minds. Carol S. Dweck, PhD in _Mindset: the new psychology of consciousness_ offers a key to Steiner. He looks like an extreme case of ultimate 'growth mindset.' Shows the signs: to go out of one's way to tackle the hard and new. To confront, wrestle with ideas and people even though Steiner disbelieved and felt out of harmony with them. --Mistakenly, he was accused of being wishy-washy and dilletante.
