Summary

100 Conversations with Idries Shah

Condensed from more than three million words, these conversations involve housewives and cabinet ministers, professors and assembly-line workers, on the subject of how traditional psychology can illuminate current human, social, and spiritual problems.

More than 100 tales and extracts from Sufi lore, ranging from the eighth century (Hasan of Basra) to the modern Afghan poet Khalilullah Khalili, are woven into Shah’s narratives of how and why the Sufis learn what they learn and how spiritual understanding develops and deteriorates in all societies.

Deep meanings which to unfathom will take many readings but can say this book is unique in its breadth and intensity. Be ready far standard paradigms to be challenged.

bracing and illuminating

this listen was my fourth encounter with learning how to learn, and I'm always surprised to find so much depth and richness--it seems as if I'm opening the book for the first time. structured differently from many of shah's other books, learning how to learn is a series of questions and answers, each of which provides a jumping off point for Shah to touch on matters of spirituality, psychology, learning, and human behavior. however, the overall theme is the same as all of his books, the elucidation of the course of the Seeker after Truth. if you know Shah's work, then here he is at his best. if you do not, this book will serve as well as any as a engaging introduction to his way of thought.

The title is accurate to the teaching

This book can help the reader to gain tools in which to re-examine his/herself and how s/he understands and interacts with the environment. Humor and seriousness are interwoven while alway giving information to be tested. A great work and highly recommended.
