really liked it

This is one of those rare books that asks the big questions, and I think Glendinning's questions and answers are the right ones. As a Shambala product the book certainly reached the New Age indigenous appropriation market, but Glendinning rises above that cohort by genuinely listening to indigenous peoples and challenging the deep sicknesses of settler society. It's a brilliant move to use the self-help format to address an entire society's irrational clinging to an omnicidal lifestyle.
