You don't have to aspire to be an alchemist or magician to appreciate this book. MacCoun deals with profound stuff about life in a clear and down-to-earth writing style. Having read it once I now feel the need to return to the book to re-visit and mull over some of the ideas she explores. Full of learning and wisdom that is communicated in a zen kind of way, which is to say focussed, direct, and with a sense of humour, she's sort of an Osho of alchemy.

I have had the good fortune to read many excellent and profound spiritual books, but if I could only take one to a desert island, this might well be it. Catherine MacCoun writes not only with a lifetime's (probably several lifetimes'!) experience of soul and spirit, but with wonderful earthly radiant self-mocking humour and complete lack of pomposity or hermetic obfuscation. I should think this is a book anyone, on any sort of spiritual or religious (or even completely secular) path, would get something from. But in particular, if you are looking for a guide who can help show how spiritual aspiration meshes with down-to-earth real life where the rubber hits the road, I'm sure you'd find this book enthralling, as I have (just reading it for the umpteenth time).. Alchemy has never been expressed with such elan! .
