I wanted to love this book, as I'm deeply on board with a mutualistic, interdependent view of our place in this world but couldn't get on board with Abram's voice.

For me this is a really wonderful take on the role of artists (among other things) and how it could change as the culture changes.

Abram is far more responsible to the potential of the subject than most authors would be; that is, he's both curious and scholarly, scrupulous and generous. He began as a sleight-of-hand magician doing anthropology, and the simple intuitive brilliance of that combination is a thread throughout the book.

This is a brilliant and subtle book whichc makes us question about our relation with nature, perception and our environment. It is really a spiritual book.
