It is not hard to understand why Gibran was as popular in his day, and in the 1960's, as he was. Covering the landscape from religion to love, Gibran bubbles up deep truths in the form of a farewell speech from the Prophet to the people of his city before he sets sail on a final journey. The metaphors are numerous and the scale of depth is exceptional.
The book itself is nearly 100 pages, but the content is not readable at any level rapidly. This book is one that bears constant revival and renewal. It's a well that provides the reader with sweet water of wisdom which merits frequent draws to slake the thirst.
A must have and a must read.
When I first read it, I found some passages difficult to grasp. Looking back, I now think that it was not because they were hard to understand, but because I did not want to hear gently spoken, intelligently phrased ideas that contradicted my own. Now, if I could have only one book, this would probably be it.
