Dear Dennis,
Thanks for your comments, all positive.  If you do see anything in the book 
that you feel is not exactly accurate, or that, as you see it, is "wrong" for 
any reason at all, I'd be most grateful to hear about it.  That applies to 
everyone reading this.  This work, as I see it, does not belong to any one 
person.  Its purpose is to help clarify, as much as is humanly possible, what 
is the significance of the grand phenomenon that took place within our 
lifetime, which (again, as I see it) "began" with the founding of America, 
became deeper with the founding of the Theosophical Society, spread 
throughout the world by means of the perennial renaissance, and culminated 
with Krishnamurti's presence in the 20th Century.  (Of course, & as I explain 
briefly in the book, there had been preparations for this grand phenomenon 
for centuries, all over the planet; hence the quote marks around "began.")
So what's important here is that all of us who are deeply interested in 
either K's work or that of the TS or that of the perennial philosophy, should 
do our best to look into issues related to that grand phenomenon as carefully 
as we can, realizing that our conditioning & opinions & prejudices will rear 
their ugly heads at any moment.  So it's a work one needs to go into with 
great tentativeness.  The worst thing any of us can do, it seems to me, is to 
make the assumption that we already know what it all means.  Every day is a 
new day to look at this in a fresh way.
Thanks again.  Blessings,
