Críticas:

"Overall, I recommend this book to anyone interested in Cultural Anthropology, Shamanism, Amazonin Influences, Religions." - www.encouraginghealth.com "This book does far more than live up to its strange title. Anthropologist Rios (Univ. of California, Irvine) joins Peruvian journalist Rumrrill in revealing a peculiar, engrossing saga of recent changes and controversies centered around tea derived from the hallucinogenic vine ayahuasca (Banisteriopsis caapi). [...] Summing Up: Highly recommended." - Choice "This book represents an important addition to the current discussion about ways to use ayahuasca (and other drugs) to maximize the potential for benefit and minimize the possibility of harm. It is not a book for people who know little about ayahuasca, but one that should be read by those who wish to gain a fuller understanding of the perils and promise of contemporary ayahuasca use. While aficionados may take issue with some of the points raised by the authors, this does not diminish their importance. Anthropological research has shown that almost any psychoactive substance can be used for culturally constructive and integrative purposes if such use occurs in a socially sanctioned and culturally accepted context. In the past, such contexts have typically been provided by religions. While postmodern individuals might be justifiable skeptical of these religions, they would do well to understand the deeper nature of rituals and the ways they help to constructively contextualize both their participants' experiences and the things they learn from these experiences. Herein lies what is perhaps the most important message of this timely book." - Anthropology of Consciousness
