'If you only ever read one spiritual book, let is be this one' Susan Jeffers, author of Feel the Fear and Do It Anyway

'A kaleidoscope of inspiration' The Watkins Review

50 Spiritual Classics captures the diversity of life journeys that span centuries, continents, spiritual traditions and secular beliefs: from the historical The Book of Chuang Tzu to modern insight from the Kabbalah, from Kahlil Gibran's The Prophet to Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance.

This one-of-a-kind collection includes personal memoirs and complelling biographies of Gandhi to Malcolm X and Black Elk; Eastern philosophers and gurus including Krishnamurti, Yogananda, Chogyam Trungpa and Shunryu Suzuki; and Western saints and mystics such as St. Frances of Assisi, Hermann Hesse and Simone Weil.
