Editorial Reviews

Library Journal - Library Journal
Waage, a television producer, and Applestone, a journalist, inform readers about 350 spiritual sites and centers of New York City and its environs, including yoga studios, Buddhist and Kabbalah centers, and gay- and lesbian-friendly places of worship. Within each of the main sections-"Eastern Paths," "Western Paths," "Off the Beaten Path," and "Beyond"-the authors describe the main tenets of each religion or philosophy, from Hinduism and Islam to Theosophy and Wicca. In addition to listing the name, address, and telephone number of each organization, they describe the "flavor and feeling" of the place itself-the clientele, the style of the minister, rabbi, swami, or spiritual leader, and so on. Also included are a glossary; lists of festivals, web sites, and bookstores; and indexes by alphabet, region, and activity. A useful guide for both believers and those who wish to learn more about the subject, this is recommended for most public libraries, especially those in the New York City area.-George M.
