Kessinger Publication should be congratulated in publishing a very rare
book which was originally published in 1936. Ernest Wood worked very
closely with Annie Besant and Charles Leadbeater and was one of the tutors
of Jiddu Krishnamurti. He was also the private secretary of Leadbeater for
several years. After Annie Besant died, he ran for the office of President.
Hence he saw the Theosophical Society administration first hand. Very few
in the Theosophical organizations have read this book and it was very rare
to find it in any library. Anyone interested in the historical facts
surrounding Theosophical Society and early days of Jiddu Krishnamurti
should read it. Here is a summary of the details.
