1.0 out of 5 stars Useless book
This is the book of short excerpts taken from first 8 Castaneda's books. There is nothing new in it. The book is made and published after Castanedas death, and that is the only reason why this book is interesting to customers.
You cannot read this book because the excerpt on a page hs nothing common with the excerpt on the next page. Only thing what is possible to do...

This review is from: The Wheel Of Time: The Shamans Of Mexico Their Thoughts About Life Death And The Universe (Paperback)
This is the book of short excerpts taken from first 8 Castaneda's books. There is nothing new in it. The book is made and published after Castanedas death, and that is the only reason why this book is interesting to customers.
You cannot read this book because the excerpt on a page hs nothing common with the excerpt on the next page. Only thing what is possible to do with it is to open book randomly and read what is in the page you opened.
Even more, I would be less critical if someone would take these excerpts and group them by the theme. That would give some purpose to the book. But in this book excerps are grouped by the book in which they can be found.
The way in which the matter is presented in this book is useless.

5.0 out of 5 stars Inspirational Excerpts From Past Books, Nov. 10 2001
This review is from: The Wheel Of Time: The Shamans Of Mexico Their Thoughts About Life Death And The Universe (Paperback)
For those who like Casteneda, this is a good addition to your library. It's unfortunate for us that Casteneda has past on. For those of you who long for the next generation of Casteneda, you may want to check out Regan's The Evolution of a Warrior - a great new novelist in the spirit of Casteneda.

This review is from: The Wheel Of Time: The Shamans Of Mexico Their Thoughts About Life Death And The Universe (Paperback)
This book is a collection of truisms and cliches which to me, divested from the twinkling eyes of Don Juan, sound boring and trite. There are a few quotes in this book, however, that make the book worth reading. Here's one I like (p. 257):
"It isn't that a warrior learns shamanism as time goes by; rather, what he learns as time goes by is to save energy. This energy will enable him to handle some of the energy fields which are ordinarily inaccesible to him. Shamanism is a state of awareness, the ability to use energy fields that are not employed in perceiving the everyday-life world that we know."
