In this work, Carlos Castaneda at completes the long journey into the world of sorcery that began with his now-legendary meeting with don Juan. Until now don Juan has performed his acts of power in his world, the dry, barren deserts and mesas of his birth. Now, in an unexpected encounter, don Juan appears in Castaneda's modern urban world, at ease in a well-tailored suit, demonstrating his lessons of power in the crowded, busy streets, using the city scene, as he uses everything, to unfold the wings of Carlos Castaneda's perception. Thus, Don Juan concludes the instruction of Castaneda with his most powerful and mysterious lesson in the sorcerer's art--a dazzling series of visions that are at once an initiation and a deeply moving farewell.

I guess "Tales of B.S." would've sold less copies. Carlos Casteneda was Peruvian-born, American-educated anthropologist/writer whose book "The Teachings of Don Juan" became a kind of hippie/new age bible. Casteneda met a Yaqui Indian in Mexico called Don Juan and wrote a series of books based on his "teachings." This is the fourth in the series. I couldn't help but be skeptical and just flipping it open at random you get pearls of wisdom like "A warrior doesn't ever lead the island of the tonal. He uses it." Huh? I suppose if you're on drugs, this might seem profound Casteneda later formed a for-profit "movement" called Cleargreen and lived with three women. Sounds a bit cultish.
