Meetings with Remarkable Men
Gurdjieff clearly wanted people to read his "first series" before reading "Meetings." On the surface, "Meetings With Remarkable Men" is autobiographical, with chapters related to major figures in Gurdjieff's early life and period of intense search. Those who have studied this book very deeply insist that there is more to the depths than there is to the surface. The final chapter, "The Material Question," is of great interest to anyone (everyone) struggling with "the work in life."
