In "Thе Eye of the Dragon", Stalking Castaneda the author has written an engaging metaphysical narrative about the work of Carlos Castaneda. He is telling his own adventures and experiences, and using these as metaphors for the actual teachings.
At the premise level, this book is focused on a fairly generic subject (shamanism), but at the execution level this generic quality is lifted with a personal and unique narrative. This personal touch warms up the material and makes the work accessible to the reader. Guzman's writing style is particularly engaging; there is a wonderful cadence to his writing that grabs readers and holds their attention.
This is ninety percent episodic narrative and ten percent outright teaching.
"A casual, honest voice."— Writer's Digest
The book's main subject is shamanism, but the author juxtaposes the teachings with other major philosophies to show how they all converge at one point: the eye of the dragon . . . and to expose humanity's bane.
