  1. Interesting but incomplete. I’d like to see the author spend more time on the why’s and wherefores. Also, from the very little I know, there’s a *ton* more that can be said about the history of the various american schools of spiritualism, new thought, theosophy, yoga, etc., etc.. With a little more background & contextualization, the author would be in a better position to highlight what’s different and significant about contemporary developments in the self-improvement sphere(s).
