One Time Mention

Castaneda's Path of Knowledge by Donald Lee Williams. Described by a reader as Jungian analysis. 
The Farm on the River of Emeralds by Moritz Thomsen. A book with interesting stories about a man who chucked it all to go farm in the jungles of Ecuador. No mention of Carlos that I am aware of, but a reader found many of Carlos' concepts amidst the stories. One interesting incident where the voice of seeing spared the man from being bitten by a Coral Snake. 
Freedom Through Higher Awareness by Dr. Wayne Dyers (tape series). Dr. Dyers discusses Being-in-Dreaming and gives some new perspectives on Freedom. 
Exploring the Ways of Mankind by W.R. Goldschmidt. 2nd edition, pgs 187-195 has references. 
"An Ally for Castaneda", Exemplars, pgs 188-218. 
"Carlos Castaneda," New York Times Book Review and Literary Supplement. Article including picture of very young Carlos. Portrays him as sincere and tricky.
