    Carlos Castanada was a student of anthropology when he met Don Juan Matus, a Yaqui shaman and the inspiration for Castanada’s The Teachings of Don Juan. In this controversial work, Castanada relays his experiences being challenged by his mentor on his perception of the world and all living things in it.

    I read this book quite a while ago; in my teens actually. Currently I have this book in written form. Thinking it might be convenient to listen to the book this time I purchased it from Audible. I feel it my duty to warn others that the narrator is one of the worst I have ever heard. He puts the wrong emphasis on the wrong syllables. His reading is slow and staccato. He almost calls out words rather than reading them. He seems to have no concept of how to read in a flowing manner. He expresses strong emotion in places it is not called for etc. etc. To sum up the narration is so bad that it is very hard get understand the book.
