Castaneda's tale is a key piece of personal enhancement mystical writing. The reader is invited back to an era when mental expansion/exploration was a significant and genuine part of U.S. culture, when Castaneda explores the notion of other culture's having more power and substance than that of materialism. Important reading for anyone interested in orienting themselves within the tumultuous 20th century and beyond.
I believe this could be a good tool for those first starting out on their journey of inner knowledge. In fact, I know several people who adore this and other books by Castaneda. I just couldn't get into his writing. While the author attempts to shroud the lessons in mystery, I felt I could clearly see through it. I think if I had encountered this book before reading so many others on journeying, I would have enjoyed it, but since it wasn't, I felt it was rather poor.
