Hmmm. This book was an interesting experience. The first night when I started reading about 'death as an advisor' I actually got freaked out which, is unusual since I am comfortable while working around death everyday. As I continued reading I had the notion that don Juan is an amalgamation of people Castaneda spent time with and a convenient way to capture his experiences. After watching the BBC documentary about the topic I felt a bit patronized by Castaneda....and annoyed with the hippie-lover's aspects of the book. While finishing 'Journey' today however, I was once again freaked out. Things around me were coinciding with what don Juan was saying which I found a bit unnerving. Though I liked this read, I don't plan to read Castaneda's other works.
