This is fantastic book on shamanism It includes so much information of historical and anthropological significance that it felt like a college course on Shamanism in the best possible way I am confident that if I were to reread this book I would learn new things over and over again Not only is the book itself packed full of information but there are so many references to other sources that I could spend years tracking them all down and studying them I would highly recommend this book to anyone wanting something deep informed and complex In spirituality books often feel repetitive and basic this is not one of those books
