About the Book

"Combines the wonder of magic and ancient lore with the skill and intellectual honesty of modern science. William Calvin guides us on just such a marvel-packed quest, in search of techniques used by sages and shamans, tracing discoveries made sometimes by accident and sometimes by sheer genius long before the dawn of our own age."
-David Brin
