    One thought on “The Herald of Coming Good”

    1. I love returning to Gurdjiieff when seeking renewal. I found the book excruciatingly challenging initially.As i have grown so has my appreciation for the sage's insight.I've read all of his stuff many times.Gurdjieff exposes the ego as the bane of mankind while proposing a curative which his system provides.Wisdom comes with each review.Give it a chanceReturn to it if stymied. I did & do not regret it.

    2. I took a while to get to this book because Gurdjieff had requested that no one read it. But after reading everything else he has ever written, I felt I could give myself permission. I don't see what the big deal is. It's a short book. It gives some very good very general overview of some of his very basic primary ideas. In summary: thoughts, emotions, and actions need to coincide and work together. It is very hard to do this. Most people act purely as reaction, are completely mechanical, blah bl [...]

    3. Many words, little actual content, but that’s probably Gurdjieff’s intention on this one. More of an advertisement for his work, with a few words about what needs to be done to rectify man’s fallen state. May be of interest to the most devoted Gurdjieff follower (as I once was), but largely a nuisance to read for 99%.

    4. this was the first book that was intended to reach the public, to feel out the potential for this sort of thing suggests something of possibilities to those with the sense to respond, but i believe this book was quickly seem as somewhat of a mistake by Gurdjieff himself. perhaps it was too sincere or something

    5. It's basically an invitation to read all of his other books offering a few basic ideas and outlining some autobiographical history. It's a great introduction to his writing style. It is by no means essential reading to understand G. I. Gurdjieff.

    6. The official invitational of G.I.G's extremely long workload, with a very pompous title, which bodes well, in my opinion, for the future, should I choose to accept it. Comma, comma, comma. G.I.G. hates grammar and so can I.

    7. I am really into the way Gurdjieff writes and cannot believe it took me so long to read something by him!
