Stock Description, May Not Reflect Item

Hermann Hesse's Siddhartha, James Redfield's The Celestine Prophecy, Michael Murphy's Golf in the Kingdom, Dan Millman's The Way of the Peaceful Warrior ... all have breathed exciting, novelistic life into metaphysical concepts. Now, An American Mystic joins their company.

An American Mystic reveals the quest of a charismatic young hero who -- under the tutelage of an aging Sufi master -- discovers the ten elements of enlightenment. Ben Brickman, an American graduate student in psychology whose thesis on divine hallucinations has stalled in writer's block, is haunted by bizarre dreams as he makes end meet in Paris. Meanwhile, on the Aegean coast of Turkey, nearly a hundred people have experienced a powerful phenomenon -- an apparently divine figure, calling himself "the Magician", who exudes a feeling of peace and who promises, in the near future, to reveal a vital message for the twenty-for century. Is this "Magician" merely a hallucination or is he a divine messenger? Not until Ben has completed the ten tasks of enlightenment will the full truth be revealed and the reader gifted with a new transformative vision.
