Correction: The book was actually Anthony Storr, Feet of Clay: A Study of Gu
rus (Simon and Schuster, 1996):http://books.google.com.tw/books/about/ ... edir_esc=y
Storr attempts a psychological analysis of the guru type as exemplified by Jim Jones, David Koresh, G.I. Gurdjieff, Rudolf Steiner, Sigmund Freud, C.G. Jung, Ignatius Loyala, and Jesus.
The other book which I confused it with, Stripping the Gurus
, criticizes at least two figures whom our filmmaker friend admires.
