  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Sam Rosenthal | 2/4/2014

    " This is the third book in the series, and I like it best of the first three. It starts getting into the techniques of Don Juan's teaching, and there are no more references to peyote usage. So it's now about impeccability and learning to conserve energy to have power. Good read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Monika Müller | 1/17/2014

    " This book helped m a lot to understand the deeper meaning of life. It is just incredible to know that Castaneda has not written all the books published under his name. The true writer lives in Puebla. Carlos Castaneda's karma.... ...to steal this material..... "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Robin | 12/1/2013

    " I read this book as a teenage on the recommendation of my then boyfriend. I remember parts of the book were very interesting and other parts that made no sense to me. It could have been my age and maturity and I have often thought of reading it again. It just never seems to reach the top of the stack on my nightstand. "

    " I really tried to read his book, but more I'd read more I thought that the author had spent time with Don Juan on using some kind of drug. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 David Rutland | 11/25/2013

    " fun, kinda weird. maybe spookier than the first one. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Rob | 11/23/2013

    " this is the second castaneda "Don Juan" book. i didn't read the first one. it's hard to explain why i liked this book. i guess the character of Don Juan is just so cool. any story about a young idiot going out in the desert and meeting an old hermit who tries to teach him how to stop being such a fool, you can't really go wrong. "

    " What can I say about a book that changed my adolescent life? Other than the fact that everything written within these pages should be taken with a huge slab of salt, I am indebted to where the Carlos took my preteen mind. "

    " anthropology or fabrication? doesn't matter--can't be too much carpe diem literature and this is excellent--i've loved page 88 for many decades-- "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Rory | 4/4/2012

    " A bit slower moving than The Teaching's of Don Juan, but just as interesting and insightful. It talks about some different ideas, mainly the preoccupation with the rational and logical and how that must be dissolved in order to truly "see". "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Kathy | 2/27/2012

    " Young Ben handed it to Sayid in jail and told him it was a good read, he'd read it twice. So, naturally, I have to....(I've already found a reference to seeing things in smoke...) "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ivan | 1/12/2011

    " I think that this was a good story. I learned a few things about the way of the warrior and what it means to communicate with nature. It is recommended that you read The Teachings of Don Juan: A Yaqui Way of Knowledge first. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Mark | 1/12/2011

    " Great book distinctly remember a major personal surprise experience (A fleeting glimpse) whilst reading this. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Danny | 12/9/2010

    " Really good. I definitely want to check out the Teachings of Don Juan now and maybe other books. Lots of great wisdom, ideas, and experiences I wish I could have. But that would be indulging which is not the way of the warrior. I must be patient and await my will. "

    " Esina uma maneira diferente de viver, muito bom!

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Jeremy | 9/7/2010

    " While I still enjoyed going back into Don Juan's world, this time it was, well, boring. A slow and generally unsatisfying read, it felt like a book that didn't really need to be written. The Fire Within was a much better follow up to the original. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Pablo | 5/3/2010

    " This book is a worthy read. Not for the faint of will. "

    " One of the most beautiful books of our time, if there was ever a Don Juan, Carlos must have been very lucky to have met him in person as we all need a teacher like him, although thankfully we can read his teachings through these wonderful books. "
