I hope the book is written better than the web page blurb. I am typically disappointed by books on paranormal or anomalous subjects that are penned by people who write in a way that is unreadable or who haven't utilized an editor. This is one gigantic, awful paragraph.

It's just one monolithic block of text. Hard to read.

The single wad of text is a result of that particular book site's presentation. By way of comparison, the same text is more properly segmented on Amazon's listings, such as:

https://www.amazon.ca/Understanding-spirituality-lessons-Apprentice-Shaman-ebook/dp/B07XPJNGMZ/ref=sr_1_3?keywords=Insight+Vision&qid=1568497757&refinements=p_n_date:5916705011&s=digital-text&sr=1-3
Ok, but if that is the “product description”, I’m still entirely unmotivated to read it. It sounds like a bio of a person who loves to talk about himself.

Fine ... At least that opinion is based on the descriptive content rather than a particular site's inept presentation ...

Yes, I am not noticing much detail about the actual contents of the book! I am also a bit alarmed by such detail as his pride in never having knocked up another woman other than his wife. Or that their first child was conceived on their wedding night. I did not need to know that. But now I do.
