KIRKUS REVIEW

Newcomers to the field of occult philosophy will find this book helpful, while old students will gather many a new meaning from his presentation of the Yoga Sutras of Patanjali. Wood has given at once something definite for the beginner, and as the philosophical content deepens, much food for thought and argument of a constructive kind for the esoteric. The expert will find joy in sensing Wood's modern, psychological approach through a comparison of this translation with the most scholarly Volume 17 in the Harvard Oriental Series, and his Samscrit translation is above reproach. Here is the life of the would-be contemplative from his first aspirations, down through his grilling work as a novice, to the achievement of his aims.
