The 'factual' style of this book made it more believable--and less annoying--than The Celestine Prophecy on which it is based. Although it contains the same ideas as the original, they are not presented in the same pseudo-literary way, and therefore make for a more satisfactory read. Although the concepts outlined by Redfield will be ridiculed by many as New Age crap, if approached with a thoroughly open mind, I believe there is much food for thought here.

A thoroughly enjoying read with a lot of factual contents. The book focuses again on how one perceives everyday events. If you like the last book 'the celestine prophecy' then you will love this one, too.

If you have read the Prohercy and found the ideas gripping, you must read this one too. His ideas about energy use and reasons for our behviour are well worth pondering upon.

What struck me on reading this books was that so much of the content was the same as I had learned among old-fashioned Christian mystics, who used to convey it in a language based on old Bible translations. Now it was rewritten into modern New Age speak. This of course makes it neither more nor less true, but opens up old insights for a different readership. As can be expected, some generic New Age ideas are added, and it is all steeped in the overly optimistic tone that was common before 9/11.

The life Redfield describes is somewhat like living inside a massive role-playing game, suffused by magic and with the comforting knowledge that our life has a plotline where there will always be a quest waiting for us if we just look for it. A quest which we will be able to complete if only we talk to the people in our way.

This book is not only a very gripping thriller but gives many insights into the spiritual journey which we can all go on. The author enables one to be part of the action and it is very difficult to put down once started.

I avoided this book for many many years, thinking it went against my Christian beliefs. It doesn't - it offers a wider perspective on our spirituality and begins to make sense of coincidences and intuition.

It isn#t the best-written book in the world but that doesn't prevent it from being a gripping read and an amazing introduction to a new phase of spiritual growth. I recommend it to anybody who is feeling "There must be more..."

I've always been interested in spirituality and metaphysics world, some people reckoned am one of the indigos. I was drawn by Redfield's first book and as for The Celestine Vision, it gives me invaluable and additional insight for being an indigo :)
