    When we sold books, Jonathan Livingston Seagull was asked for more than any of Bach's other books. A true spiritual classic.

    A classic (although I think I did prefer Illusions)

    Heres one of my favourite peices from the Illusions, read by Richard Bach. Genius.

    just bought this after long last and read it on the plane on the way to Turkey last weekend. Very good book, sometimes I have to re-read things a few timesto get the message as I can be a bit slow reading riddles, but what I understood, very good book indeed. Illusions is amazing aswell.

    Social darwinism at it's worst. A polemic masquerading as literature. The message seems to be, the weak deserve to perish and the strong deserve to flourish. Avoid the book, the film and the album by Neil Diamond, but then, that goes without saying.

    The book is not about social Darwinism at all, it is about consciously evolving beyond what you are now, to become something different, and hopefully better.

    And then finding to your joy that there are others like you, who are also at a similar stage of the journey. (A bit like finding this website, for many people).

    Finally it is finding to your awe that there are others more advanced along the path than you, who have flown this path before you, and invite you to join them.
