Great Lumbering Flying Cathedrals, Batman!

The thing that makes this really bad is that this is the publisher's own blurb from the back of the book:

Into the vast allegory of Beelzebub's Tales to His Grandson (All and Everything, First Series), topheavy from its sheer weight of argument and at the same time soaring off into space like a great lumbering, flying cathedral, Gurjieff gathered the fundamentals of his teaching.

Way to sell it, guys!

  1. Reminds me a little of a bootleg DVD I bought in China a few years ago. On the front was a blurb picked (apparently by random) from a review - "Boredom quickly sets in however."
