I have not seen Wood's book. Should try to get hold of one and I am sure it
is going to be interesting and informative, knowing the background of Wood.
BTW, more than 20 years ago, I gave Jinarajadasa's book First Priciples of
Theosophy to a well known Professor dealing with General Systems Theory and
who was brought up in the Southern USA as a Baptist, and it was very
enlightening for him. His narrow training as a Baptist helped him to
appreciate Theosophical view and even though he never became a member of TS,
he was indeed affected by Theosophy as I could see his outlook on life and
his very helpfulness towards his acquaintances and students.
