Summary

The Magic Monastery

Many of Idries Shah's books are comprised of tales and teaching stories taken from both written and oral sources, which illustrate the instructional methods employed by Eastern wise men for thousands of years.

The Magic Monastery differs from its predecessors in that it contains not only traditional tales - mostly unpublished - but also stories specially written by Shah to complete the book as a "course in non-linear thinking".

As with all of his works, The Magic Monastery is rich in thought-provoking material, and can be listened to and enjoyed at many levels.
