He weaves the concepts of some modern philosophers into an entertaining tale, filled with ideas to ponder and discuss. I was 16, when I read the book and I loved the way Don Juan perceives the world as so very alive and kind of magical.
This for me is always a good si This is the first in a series of books which Castaneda wrote after he realized that his prior emphasis on psychotropic drugs was a misleading and “erroneous” means of conveying the lessons he gained from his apprenticeship with don Juan. Apr 18, Juliana rated it really liked it. Yet caxtaneda book’s faux naif style succeeds in making it just as real as it was before Castaneda’s trickery was discovered.

He learns the gait of power and the tricky art of not-doing. My perception of the world through the effects of those psychotropics had been so bizarre and impressive that Ixttlan was forced to assume that such states were the only avenue to communicating and learning what Don Juan was attempting to teach me.

A friend of mine, someone I’ve always admired, recently recommended this book along with several others. Goodreads helps you keep track of books you want to read.

The book is well-expressed, though the content is difficult to grasp.
