Overall, very good.

My only criticism of Luis Moreno's rendition of Carlos Castañeda's work is that Luis should have read, and familiarised himself with Carlos' entire portfolio concerning the sorcerer Don Juan Matus, before endeavouring to reproduce the work for audio books. He might have avoided mispronouncing the terminology. I refer specifically to the term 'nagual', which occurs throughout the books from 'Tales of Power' onwards. A shame, because other than that one glaring error, Luis is brilliant!

My mind is blown

I avoided Carlos Castaneda for a long time. I heard all of the talk that he was a charlatan and so I just didn't bother reading his material for myself. Let me just say, this is the first book of his that I have read and it is deeply complex and heavily esoteric to the extreme. I've listened to this book four times already and I'm still learning from it. It is a lot to take in. There is a massive amount of information here and all of it is vital if you're on the path to understanding the true nature of reality.

If you've read books about strange phenomena such as "skinwalker ranch" or you've read books by John keel and you actually want to know in depth what was happening in those instances 'beyond the veil'- read this book. I'm absolutely floored at how helpful, amazing and absolutely mind blowing it was.

I can't recommend it enough!

Astonishing!

I've been looking for this particular audio book for many years! And finally Mr. Moreno did the recording. I should admit that the manner of performance is one of the best I've heard, it's really hard to believe this all just one person. I am amazed!!! Thank you so much!

I've done all of this before I read the book.

When I was about 12, I've learned to control my dreams. I kept going to the same place and I've formed the world I dreamed each night. I've taught this process to a friend and after two years we have managed to coordinate our dreams and meet in there. I got invaded by an entity after about 2 years that kept sucking my energy and each state of dreaming left me exhausted. After coming into physical contact with it, it electrocuted me with fear I've never felt before or since and left me unable to go to school the next day, so I had to stop this practice. Ever since then, I had an occasional voice start talking to me if I got into a half-asleep state. I don't have any special abilities, I never knew what this dream state can be used for, but I can perceive the world around me and communicate with people around while dreaming. I have also felt asleep in a dream and had another dream that was super realistic and when my mom woke me up the next morning for school, I went back through waking up in the original dream first. I always thought what a weird experience that was.
20 years later I read this book. Words can not describe the way my mind is blown right now. What is written in this book must sound absurd to you, but I tell you, every single word in this book is true, I live it.

excellent

it took a while to get used to the voice of don juan. the narrator made him out to be a don juan I'm not used to. when i read the books don juan is not nearly as arrogant and pompous as the narrator makes him out to be. over all very good book.

total nonsense

very disappointing that this is passed off as even being remotely possible to be nonfiction. Read many spiritual teachings and many books based on religion and belief and none of which came anywhere near as ridiculous as this fable.
