"This attractive volume is in the tradition of Krishnamurti's books and various classics like The Three Pillars of Zen in its strength, clarity, and simplicity."--Brain/Mind Bulletin

"The Experience of Insight comes about as close to delivering the promise of its title as any written material can."--East West Journal

"A broad-minded, open-handed invitation to come and experience for oneself the everchanging nature of mind and body."--New Age
