It is exactly as the title says: a simple explanation of work ideas. Nicoll has done well to pre-digest this teaching so that those unfamiliar with the teaching can be nourished by it. It covers the necessary basic concepts of genuine self-transformation, addressing man, not as he is, but as he can be. This book is not for those who are 'into self-help' or the popular spiritual discipline of the day. It is for those who are sincere in their wish to be different, to contact the inner circles of mankind through which the teachings originate. While first contact with it is superficial, any actual and sincere efforts made according to this books suggestion, will reveal deeper and deeper layers of the essential human being that one is.
