"The five books that changed my life" * Woman * --This text refers to the Audio CD edition.
From the Inside Flap
In the cloud-washed airspace between the cornfields of Illinois and blue infinity, a man puts his faith in the propeller of his biplane. For disillusioned writer and itinerant barnstormer Richard Bach, belief is as real as a full tank of gas and sparks firing in the cylinders...until he meets Donald Shimoda--former mechanic and self-described messiah who can make wrenches fly and Richard's imagination soar....
In "Illusions, the unforgettable follow-up to his phenomenal bestseller "Jonathan Livingston Seagull, Richard Bach takes to the air to discover the ageless truths that give our souls wings: that people don't need airplanes to soar...that even the darkest clouds have meaning once we lift ourselves above them... and that messiahs can be found in the unlikeliest places--like hay fields, one-traffic-light midwestern towns, and most of all, deep within ourselves. --This text refers to the Audio CD edition.

I chose to read "Illusions: The Adventures of a Reluctant Messiah" again because I'm planning to read "Illusions: The Adventures of a Reluctant Student." I not only recommend this book, I highly recommend it.
This book makes us go deep in ourselves, the twists and surprises drive us into a steady flow of understanding of complex aspects but in a very accessible language. So many words of wisdom, "You teach best what you most need to learn", and "You are never given a wish without also being given the power to make it true. You may have to work for it however". The book took me into a searching voyage for the messiah in myself.
