I was really hoping this book would delve more on the metaphysical side of St. Germain's life. As it is, although it touched upon that aspect, the main thrust of the book was to give us an overview of the work he did in trying to help bring Peace to France in the late 1700's. There were some interesting glimpses of historia, but overall not what I had been looking for, fascinating though this period of history was.
