About the Author
Richard Bach's inspirational classic "Jonathan Livingston Seagull" is one of the few books that dominated the #1 spot on the New York Times Bestseller List for two consecutive years. With humor, wisdom and insight that could only come from one of the world's most beloved authors and an accomplished pilot, his most recent book, "Travels with Puff", recounts Bach's journey from Florida to Washington state in his small seaplane, Puff. With over 60,000,000 copies of his books sold, Richard Bach remains one of the world's most beloved authors. A former USAF fighter pilot, Air Force captain and latter-day barnstorming pilot, Bach continues to be an avid aviator-author, exploring and chronicling the joys and freedom of flying, reporting his findings to his devoted fans. His latest book, "Illusions II", is a remarkable account of his angel’s lessons, by the way of a seaplane crash. His website is www.richardbach.com.

There are few things in my life I would describe as "Life changing", but this would definitely be one of them.
It's an amazing book. Each time I've read it I've found something else in it. I've left it on the shelf for years, read it again and found something else. It's weird how your perception and it's meaning changes over time.
Given my time and experience with this book it's impossible for me to leave a complete review.
I will say that through the years I've come across quite a few people at different points in their lives and I've given them my copy of the book, and then bought another one straight afterwards. My only regret is that I've not held onto the copy that was given to me at the time as I should have treasured it for what it was (I do however know where that copy is currently living and I'm happy in that knowledge).
Everyone should read this book at least once.
I have always loved Richard Bach but I can't give this book 5 stars based on loyalty rather than honest criticism.
I was expecting this book to feel insightful and new but instead I felt it held back a lot of emotion and feeling and I particularly expected at least some reflections on Richard's life while he went through this experience. I would have liked these to be spoken by Richard and not Donald Shimoda or the ferrets. What I'm trying to say was that this book held a wall up against any vulnerability or lessons learnt. At least it felt that way.
It was however, lovely to know that Richard is doing well and to hear about his courageous and fast recovery experience.
Perhaps naming the book 'Illusions II' leaves readers expecting the same high standard and insights as written in 'Illusions'.
I continue to cherish Richard's other books.
Take the idea that you can fly a propeller driven aeroplane that requires little if any fuel ever, can dodge the flies and bugs as it skims over the fields and attracts fee paying passengers, believers and non believers...believing in what you have to resolve in your head.
There's been a few things lately that have made me wonder 'what if the world really is like The Matrix', and this is just another of those things. People have said for years 'life is what you make it'. What if this is actually true?
Love how this challenges our monkey brains, and yet offers it as a suggestion. Like 'here is some information; do with it as you will'.
Thank you for sharing this, even if you didn't want to write it, Richard.
