There are a lot books about learning the principles of shamanism, but only a few of them are really good. This is one of these few books. It is not the positive scum about the positive way of shamanism. It is quiet rational, a bit critical, pessimistic and clearly written. This guy knows how to sell his ideas and convince you by his way.
He describes various aspects of modern shamanism including burning man festival and tribal tourism. Though he criticizes most of what he experieces he is coming to a deeper understanding of the underlying principles behind it all.
Everyone interested in shamanism should read this book. Maybe it is not breaking open your head, but maybe it still will open your eyes.
