Summary

A serious, yet entertaining, look at the impediments in current thought which prevent certain forms of understanding between people. The title story was made into an award-winning film with script by Idries Shah, and chosen as an Outstanding Film of the Year.

The Dermis Probe comprises a collection of extracts from the written and oral tradition of Eastern thinkers.

In this book you can find illustrated some of the peculiarities of thought in the country which is today's world, seen by its inhabitants and by those who call themselves visitors.

Sufi Wisdom

A history book of Sufi Wisdom in the form of anecdotes containing loads of psychology and humour; and parabels hinting at things the ordinary intellect knows not. I find Ault's voice clear and easy to listen to.
