The "Illusion" is that this book is meaningful
am 9. März 1999
I heard about Richard Bach from several individuals and I'm always up for a book that gives you a "swift kick in the rear" to get you recentered on your life. So after reading this overpriced, ludicrous tale: I can sum up my emotions by the famous punctuation mark "?". So people can do whatever they want! Yay! Bach fails to recognize that there are consequences in life for errant decisions. Instead he talks about swimming in the earth and walking on the water - if, of course, that's what we want to do. We can do anything! I guess the thing that really disturbed me about this book was that there wasn't any correlation to the way life really is. Can we all be brain neurosurgeons? Of course not. Some people aren't capable of "doing" things. Not according to Bach! As long as we're willing to work, we can do it! Get real. Pick up a copy of Paulo Coelho's "The Alchemist" for an outstanding inspirational read. Leave Bach's nonsense on the shelves.
