5.0 out of 5 stars Is it fact or fiction ? 18 Oct 1998
By A Customer
Format:Hardcover
Is it fact or fiction ?. Alot of paper has been wasted in trying to answer this question. Personally, I think Castaneda's books should be read as fiction, because only then are they effective in planting a seed of doubt in the mind of the reader. A doubt that may be, just may be, there is more to life than what we experience through the five senses. Erasing personal history, losing self importance, using death as an adviser and other relevant terms are just empty words to the casual reader, but to someone treading a path with a heart they mean alot. What they mean cannot be articulated, but can only be experienced. Castaneda has written beautiful books and this one is my favourite.

4.0 out of 5 stars Nose-dive ending left me "raw" 22 Jun 1999
By A Customer
Format:Hardcover
Like his "Active Side of Infinity," CC ends this book with a surprise or two. Though the book left me feeling alone and unarmed, there was nothing there that I hadn't already opened myself to by reading the previous 10 books. --- Excellent quotations! He has done what most of his readers probably wished for - created a "Reader's Digest" version. Powerful. --- Interested to see what first-time CC readers have to say about this one!

5.0 out of 5 stars Spinning the Wheel of Time 30 July 1999
By A Customer
Format:Hardcover
The Wheel of Time was written for those individuals who have been caught up in the web of the Warriors way. By selecting these quotations in such a way, Carlos Castaneda deconstructed the rather numerous Shamanistic trickery associated with his teacher. In this way he insured that no one would be able to fall into the chaos which seems to inflict other travelers into the other side of things. The Wheel of Time was specifically written for practitioners with each quotation an expression of a particular problem which arises within the structure of this path. This book was not intended for speculation. It was intended as an avenue into the unknown which allows the warrior to remain free and unbroken.

4.0 out of 5 stars hang on to your hat! 5 Sep 2014
By duncan
Format:Paperback
harder reading than the books 'the teachings of don Juan' through 'the power of silence', which anyone who considers himself to be on any kind of spiritual quest should read and re-read after about 10 years, and again after 20, Peyote and or mushrooms, but only on personal vision quest, absolute inner silence and purity of intent a neccesity!, somewhere remote, western isles, this teacher is no joke, many of the things he cites have happened to me, i was totally greatfull for the fact these things had happened to some one else as well, unless your strong you could lose your way. Also let me recommend ' a sorcerers crossing 'by Taisha abelar, Also The 'I ching' the richard Willhelm edition, ,
