The talks in this volume are not verbatim transcriptions. In the early years of Gurdjieff’s exposition of the fourth way teaching, he rarely allowed notes to be taken during his talks. The majority of his early talks were written down after the fact by pupils who were present, either individually or collectively, and should be taken as recollections of what people believed Gurdjieff to have said.

The provenance of the talks are library archives, private collections, and individuals from all around the world. They have been arranged chronologically and are presented in this edition for the first time in their entirety.

Over one hundred authentic talks, unaltered and unexpurgated.
Illustrated and fully indexed with exercises, sayings and aphorisms.

5.0 out of 5 stars Five Stars

Excellent, if you are familiar with Gurdjieff's philosophy.

IRINA P. February 22, 2015

Highly recommended.

Long awaited and much more complete version of Views From the Real World, primarily talks from sessions at the Priory and later in Paris, often with notes by different students at the same meeting. The end part with the exercises for meditation and self-remembering are very powerful. This is a seminal work for all students. Highly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars Not Entirely New, But Valuable Anyway

Notes of lectures by Gurdjieff made by his pupils have been thin on the ground. We have the books: Views From The Real World and Peter Ouspensky's excellent In Search of The Miraculoius. This useful book contains notes, some of which clearly come from some of the lectures documented in those books - but documented here by a different note-taker - as well as from other lectures which have not, as far as I am aware, been published. If you are interested in Gurdjieff's teaching, It is important to own a copy of these book.

A Rarity - A Genuine Book On The Teachings Of Mr Gurdjieff

'In Search Of The Miraculous' is in itself a remarkable work which can be read many times, yet it is most refreshing after many years to be able to 'hear' some of the teaching presented, as it reached the ears of others present at the same as Mr Ouspensky. To any 'follower' of Mr Gurdjieff there will possibly be no new revelations contained within, yet it is valuable anyway to have concepts redefined and different examples of these presented in differing formats. It is always better I feel to hear from close to the horse's mouth than directly from the donkey's tail - I rather suspect that in the future many donkies will be attracted to Mr G's particular well of wisdom and all of them will probably feel duty-bound to educate the rest of us, thus making the efforts of Joseph Azize particularly appreciated. The book itself is beautifully bound with a soft satin-touch cover and well laid out. It must have been a major task deciding which material should be included, yet the end result deserves full commendation.

5.0 out of 5 stars A compilation of published and unpublished early talks.

Contains the enlarged and unedited Glimpses of Truth and other talks from Views of the Real World plus addition unpublished material. Highly recommended for anyone working on The Fourth Way.

Harry Gray May 25, 2014

Excellent reference

Although this book contains some of the material previously released under the title, "Views from the Real World - The Early Talks of Gurdjieff," it contains much, much more, as well as more complete and unedited versions of some of this previous material. This makes this book an invaluable reference for those still testing the waters, so to speak, as well as excellent ancillary material to participation in the living Work.
