KIRKUS REVIEW

An enhanced version of a commonplace book, Wisdom of the Age offers brief excerpts from the writings of 60 “teachers” (ranging from Buddha and Jesus up to George Bernard Shaw and Mother Teresa) followed by three- to four-page musings by Dyer (Real Magic, 1992, etc.) which attempt to explicate the sayings. The necessarily fragmentary nature of such an approach means that the book lends itself more to browsing than to study; the often bland and unsurprising analyses of the excerpts, and the only fitfully convincing effort to draw from each excerpt some plan of action for change and enhanced awareness would suggest that only the author’s longtime fans are likely to find the volume of much interest or utility. (His fans are, of course, legion.) (Author tour)
