I have changed my opinion after reading "My Father's Guru", by Jeffrey Moussaieff Masson (also featured on Amazon). Masson grew up in a family which adopted Brunton as its guru, and in his book recounts many of his own and his family's experiences with Brunton, telling a very personal story which ends in disillusionment and some bitterness.
After reading Masson's book it became clear (at least to me) that Brunton fabricates much, including his own Phd. status. I now suspect that much of what Brunton wrote in "Search in Secret India" was also fabricated. Hence, as a work of fiction masquerading as a documentary I do not rate it very highly.
The book "My Father's Guru", by J. M. Masson which attempts to belittle Paul Brunton, instead reveals the egotism of Masson, who, rather than treat Brunton's ideas objectively, only aims to find fault with Brunton for nothing other than being excessively kind.
