This review is from: The Spell of the Sensuous: Perception and Language in a More-Than-Human World (Vintage) (Paperback)
The best parts are the indigenous stories. I found a lot of Abram's philosophical writing unclear, and as the reviewer in Philosophy and Religion noted, he often presents his beliefs without really supporting them. However, those beliefs are often thought-provoking. And one section (on the future and the past) inspired me to write a poem--I suspect Abram would say that therefore his book succeeded with me at least in part.
