Kessinger Publication should be congratulated in publishing a very rare
book which was originally published in 1936. Ernest Wood worked very
closely with Annie Besant and Charles Leadbeater and was one of the tutors
of Jiddu Krishnamurti. He was also the private secretary of Leadbeater for
several years. Hence he saw the Theosophical Society administration first
hand. Very few in the Theosophical organizations have read this book and it
was very rare to find it in any library. Anyone interested in the
historical facts surrounding Theosophical Society and early days of Jiddu
Krishnamurti should read it. Here is a summary of the details.
