An insightful review of The Power of the New Spirituality: How to Live a Life of Compassion and Personal Fulfillment by William Bloom was posted today on and also appeared on The Seattle Post-Intelligencer’s website

The review reads, “Bloom is careful to distinguish between self-centered pseudo-spiritualism and genuine spiritual development. This is an important distinction, given that the harshest criticism of New Age spirituality is its tendency toward narcissism. He discourages readers from expecting spirituality to help them achieve perfect happiness or material wealth. In addition, he does not let practitioners of new spiritual movements off the hook for moral and ethical grounding.”
