The Seeker King: A Spiritual Biography of Elvis Presley by Gary Tillery was reviewed on the popular spirituality website Patheos.com.  Reviewer Arlene Sánchez-Walsh says, “Ultimately, Tillery’s book is a popular take on a well-worn subject, with some interesting insights into the extent of Elvis’ religious seeking. What may be surprising is as a seeker, Elvis moved beyond the orthodox confines of the faith of his upbringing to explore Pentecostalism’s more extravagant spiritual realities.”

Gary Tillery’s new book Working Class Mystic: A Spiritual Biography of George Harrison has been recommended by blogger and pop culture critic John Koenig in the Stuff I Like blog.

In the review, Koenig says, “Gary Tillery does a fine job helping all of this make sense to me today… Working Class Mystic uses the lyrics of Harrison to reveal his spiritual discoveries and developments. Tillery draws conclusions about Harrison’s life and works in this manner. If this type of thing interests you, I recommend this book.”

Library Journal has recommended Working Class Mystic: A Spiritual Biography of George Harrison by Gary Tillery.

The review, which can be read in full here, says, “Tillery examines Harrison’s lyrics, life, and writings and convincingly explains their place—contradictions and all—within Hinduism and within Harrison’s personal spiritual quest. The writing is clear and concise but occasionally veers into near proselytizing as Tillery extends his discussion beyond that for which he finds direct evidence in Harrison’s work. VERDICT: This is a clear, generally well-documented, and fairly short read that will find favor among Harrison and Beatles fans. Recommended.

Working Class Mystic: A Spiritual Biography of George Harrison by Gary Tillery has been making quite a splash!

 

On September 12, Publisher’s Weekly reviewed the book, saying, “Often called ‘the quiet Beatle’ because of his silence both on and off stage, Harrison spoke forcefully and eloquently in the later years of the band and during his solo career about the power of the divine and our own capacities to embrace it within. Harrison’s songs, Tillery points out, strive to awaken us to the truths that he saw quite clearly: ‘to burn out our past karma, to become aware of our divinity, and to break free of eternal return.’”

 

The book was also mentioned in another Publisher’s Weekly article on the same day, and can be seen via Scribd below.

 

 

And, finally, an excerpt was published on DailyOm on September 28!  In the excerpt, Tillery discusses Harrison’s growing fascination with Krishna.  The full excerpt can be read here.

We’ve gotten some great advance praise from Beatles insiders for Gary Tillery’s November release: Working Class Mystic: A Spiritual Biography of George Harrison.

 

 

See below for all the sparkling endorsements!

 

Having first known him back in the days when he was known only as the ‘quiet Beatle,’ it thrills me no end that George’s inner journey has now been so splendidly chronicled.

 –Victor Spinetti 

 From the early days I noticed George had an inner talent he hadn’t seemed able to unlock. I actually encouraged him to begin writing again after he seemed blocked by the song-writing success of Lennon & McCartney. I saw how he became the member of the Beatles most stretched by his friends, his philosophy and his search for meaning….a meaning which he eventually discovered. Gary Tillery has captured George’s spiritual odyssey in his latest work, which enables us to take the journey with him to unlock the secrets, move aside the veil and gain a remarkable insight. It provides an invaluable companion to his recent work on John Lennon The Cynical Idealist.

 –Bill Harry, Founder of Mersey Beat

Often referred to as the “Quiet One,” George Harrison is given full voice in Gary Tillery’s compact, yet highly enlightening Working Class Mystic. Tillery nicely summarizes Harrison’s life and music, framing the ex-Beatle’s life in terms of his life-long spiritual quest. One result of Harrison’s search, which manifested itself as the seminal benefit rock concert known as the Concert for Bangladesh, is perhaps Harrison’s greatest legacy. The sad ending of Harrison’s life at such a young age and the life-threatening experience he and his wife Olivia faced at their home by a crazed intruder are leavened with the peace Harrison felt, even in the face of death. The music, Harrison’s sense of humor and his commitment to living in the spiritual world make this book ultimately uplifting and a great read.

–Steve Matteo, author of Let it Be and Dylan and editor of Pulse magazine

In Working Class Mystic we see George Harrison not as a self-indulgent super-celebrity, but as an idealist who retained his humanity through it all, and who set an example for all of us by sharing his blessings with others. This exceptionally well-researched book shows that even with all the struggles and pitfalls Harrison had to deal with, and then find ways to overcome, he never gave up his daily search for developing his own purity of spirit. With the publication of Working Class Mystic, Gary Tillery and Quest Books have done a real service to the legacy of George Harrison as an artist of enduring value and man whose ideals remain timeless.

–David Amram, composer and author of Offbeat: Collaborating with Kerouac

One of the more fascinating Beatles biographies, Working Class Mystic is neither hagiography nor rushed cash-in, but a richly informative account, understanding and empathetic, thankfully without much of the dourness that tarnished Harrison’s later recordings. A worthy companion to Tillery’s earlier book on Lennon, it is an insightful portrait of one of music’s more complex characters, and should be devoured by Harrison’s devout disciples.

 –Joe Goodden, The Beatles Bible

In this often troubled and desensitized world of stone, Gary Tillery’s elegantly written account of Harrison’s musical and spiritual life arrives to us as if on the wings of angels.

–Anthony Pomes, Beatles expert, advisory board member of The John Lennon Center for Music & Technology
