    I read it a long time ago, and also another one by him. I'm afraid he's been pretty much shown up a a fake. At the least you need to know that he admits Don Juan is a "constructed character" based on several men Casteneda claims to have known. But mostly I believe it's fiction.

    Hi Gale! I like your new picture.

    I would recommend a good poignant novel like The Shipping News instead.
