I was worried that this book would be bogged down with too much eternal reflection; however, I have not found this book to be that way at all. I am enjoying this book immensely and I find myself trying to find the answers to Ismael's questions. It is a beautiful and intelligent book that makes you question all that you have been told.

I left this book with a new perspective on the human "myth's" that we deny exist. This book asks the reader to think beyond what we have always been told as truth and see how it in the end is the reason why we are destroying the earth and ourselves.

Extremely well written, without being pretentious, and a great book to read with others so you can discuss all that you learn in Ismael's teachings.
