Best summarized by the following two quotes : 'There is no I in a team' and 'No one can step into the same river twice'. Transforms your views if you can put up with a little bit of Hindu terminology and read the book from last to first chapter. If you can understand the first chapter then there is no need to read further.

This book does an amazing job of summarizing Sri Ramana Maharshi's
expression of Self Enquiry and the path to self realization. Very
simple and straightforward, the book details the path of Self Enquiry
"straight from the horse's mouth" and is very clear. I found
some of the Hindu terminology challenging to navigate, but the glossary
at the end was helpful. I had previously heard of Maharshi through the
teachings of Ram Dass, however this book cleared much up for me, most
significantly that the concept of neti-neti is not really at the heart
of Maharshi's teaching. This was confusing for me prior to reading this
book. Maharshi specifically discusses the mis-allocation of neti-neti
to his teaching on Self Enquiry and dispels it as an essential path
leading to Self Realization. This book is easy to read and very
practical in application, I highly recommend this book for those seeking
enlightenment through a very simple path devoid of all ceremonial
conceptions of enlightmentment or self realization.
