Unknown Woman

Virginia Beck, May 29, 2009

An extraordinary, exquisitely honest account of wrestling for the truth of one's own nature.
To use the pitiless instruments of logic to dissect the tangled web of one's own development morass, and to adhere boldly to truth and wisdom, is the sterling accomplishment of this book.

No author has ever been so bluntly and candidly honest in admitting to the self-deception inherent in the construction of the identity we loosely call, "mind". At the same time, she has left a trail, brilliantly clear that others may utilize her faithful Socratic logic, to find the truth inherent in their own being.

The integrity of her search for the true purpose of her life and work, is stunning! Few achieve so much in a lifetime, let alone the outset of her personal life.

A must read is also: Stations of Solitude!
