Helen was an important figure in her own right both as a concert pianist, composer, and, in effect, co-leader of the Adie group. Seymour B. Ginsburg Gurdjieff Unveiled

This book will be of interest not just to the Gurdjieff devotee and the scholar of new religions, but also to the general reader fascinated by the goings on in such groups and the minds of their members. It is a worthy testimony to the life of George Adie.
Dr Daren Kemp co-editor Journal of Alternative Spiritualities and New Age Studies

Joseph Azize has successfully straddled that perilous territory between academic objectivity and active participation, deftly managing to reconcile these often hostile viewpoints. Dr Helen Farley University of Queensland
