Garner could be called the Father of modern Shamanic Practices. This is the book I rely upon the most for clear, easy to follow descriptions of foundational Shamanic Practices. Well written and easily accessible to new students, I highly recommend it!

It's really hard to go wrong with this author who was one of the leading experts on shamanism when he was alive. I wish he was still around so I could learn from him directly.

This is an interesting introduction to shamanism. The book discusses shamanism as much as it gives instruction in certain practices. I doubt you actually could become a shaman from simply reading this book, maybe if you were extremely dedicated or had a special talent for it you could. This is more to find out what it is, and what it is not.
The formatting of my copy was not the best, and the writing style not one I found gripping, so it was not a quick or easy read for me. I would have liked for it to be more engaging, but this is a non-fiction book not a story for pure entertainment. This is something to read out of genuine interest of the subject matter, otherwise you will not enjoy it.… (more)
