Errrmmm....in places it's a little more new-agey-golly-gosh! in tone than I was expecting. It's a nice-looking book - a lot smaller than it appears to be from the listing pic - it's squarish and about fiction-paperback sized. Maybe I ought to have checked the measurements. It's beautifully illustrated though - really gorgeous photos throughout. As for the content that's largely descriptive: 'the shamans of this country do X, whereas the shamans of that country do Y' sort of thing but there is a lot of this material, and it seems to be pretty comprehensive. Being interested in the subject, I thought I knew slightly more than average about shamanism to begin with but there was a lot of (factual) info here that was new to me. I was expecting this to be more of an anthropologically-centered text whereas especially in the later sections this tends more towards being more like a how-to / self-help sort of book.

For example the section on 'finding your spirit animal' I found to be a bit new-age-waffly but maybe that's just me. If I'd seen this in a bookshop in Glastonbury - Glastonbury is where the target market for this sort of thing is most likely centered - I expect I'd have leafed through it then put it back on the shelf but I've bought it now so that's a fait accompli isn't it.

It's perfectly fine as a book. It's just not quite what I was expecting.

I can't comment on the quality of the factual information about Shamanism given in the book, but the picture in the section on 'The Eland' - which is a very important animal to the San tribespeople from southern Africa and is famously depicted by the San shamans /artists in their rock pictures - clearly shows a pair of Gemsbok, which look quite different to eland e.g.

Beautiful 19 Aug. 2014
By Kendra H. - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
So, if you've studied shamanism, there's nothing new. It's basically a brief overview of cultures around the world and commonalities and differences among them that still qualify as shamanism. It's a hefty, beautiful book. If you're new to shamanism, it's a decent overview about it.

Shamanism Sublime 7 Sept. 2014
By jorma - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This is a treasured addition to my library. This book contains really beautiful photographs, which accompany the prose quite nicely. While it is an overview, it encompasses a wealth of diverse information, myths, geography, and some history, and while I wish some sections were longer and others more brief, it has a nice flow. The book also lists furthur (purposely misspelled) resources to gain more knowledge. I love this book!

A well-written book with a well-rounded view of different spiritual beliefs and practices from around the world. The historical value is quite enlightening. Adding to this are the beautiful photographs. A wonderful jumping point that can lead to further, in-depth readings. I am very pleased with this book!
A great little primer... 29 Nov. 2014

A great introduction to shamanism and it's practices from around the world and various cultures. Worth purchasing for the pictures alone. There could've been more depth in the material covered, but a good resource for any animist's library.
An excellent source. 31 Aug. 2014
