With 12 books written over 30 years, Carlos Castaneda, bestselling American author, philosopher and anthropologist opened a window into another world and era. Writing detailed depictions of practices and beliefs of an ancient civilization, he revealed unexpected, exciting and frightening events with compelling believability. Revered by followers and reviled by critics, Castaneda, the author and character, and all his works are given a new, comprehensive interpretation in “Gettting Castaneda”.
Peter Luce spent thirty years traveling the world buying and selling jewelry made in Bali. An avid Castaneda reader, he composed this book in his mind over several decades as he watched Castaneda unfold his unbelievable story amidst great controversy. Like many other Castaneda fans, he wished somebody would finally “get” what Castaneda was doing and explain it. Getting Castaneda was composed in the hope of finding that explanation.
