If you are a student of Dr David Hawkins, this book will add little to his own books. If you are also a fan, then there are plenty of details in this book that I have not seen anywhere else. At the same time, the important events in the Doc's life have already been spoken of in the many lectures and interviews.
Overall this biography is very impersonal and spends about half the time talking about general backround data that anyone connected with Dr Hawkins would already know.
The doubt that the author exhibits in the later chapters becomes tiring after a while. Unfortunately the author does not believe that Dr Hawkins is a teacher of enlightenement, only a teacher of "his form of enlightenment". This pretty much limits the focus of this biography to a listing of facts and figures. I would have been interested in finding out how Dr Hawkins changed the lives of so many people, as he changed mine. To me this is the bottom line of a spiritual teacher. I am sure if the author had a better connection with Dr Hawkins *and* his teaching, he would have been able to produce a truly inspiring work.
If you like dates and facts and general backround, read this book. Otherwise, any single random page from a Dr Hawkins book is much more inspiring and useful. Thank you.
