This book is very easy to read, it is interesting and educational on every page. I enjoyed learning about don Jose Ruizs hometown and the messages he brings from there. It is an interesting story of how the great city of the Aztecs, Tenochtitlan, started - which is where Mexico City is now. The shamans message from the fire to his people was "When the eagle of truth devours the snake of lies in the garden of your mind, then you will find a home within yourself- you will find your own personal freedom." The message from this book is the wisdom you seek is inside you. I look forward to sharing this book with my teenage boys, as well. Thank you don Jose Ruiz!
