Read by David Ault, this unabridged recording of Idries Shah's Reflections is a collection of Sufi fables, aphorisms, and statements that challenge the conditioned mind. The audiobook confronts the listener with unaccustomed perspectives and ideas in an attempt to set the mind free, to see how things really are.
Great Rendition of a Favourite Book

What did you like most about Reflections?
Shah writes with rare precision and lucidity. He can strip a story down to its essential elements or explain complicated concepts with deceptively simple language.
What other book might you compare Reflections to, and why?
One difference between Reflections and some of his other collections like Thinkers of the East is that here Shah mixes in his own stories and observations along with the work of classical Sufi Masters.
Which character – as performed by David Ault – was your favourite?
Ault's first-rate reading serves the content well.
Any additional comments?
Highly recommended for anyone interested in Sufism, superb writing, and fresh viewpoints on human behavior.
