I found this to be an expectantly fine introduction to the rich and complex thought of Meister Eckhart. The author managers in the course of nine short lectures to give an overview of the wealth and depth of this great thinker. The narration does not have the polish of a professional reader, but that is easy to overlook. For anyone interested in the subject, this is a great place to begin.
