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 New York Times 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.

A Can't-Live-Without-It Inspiration in my Life
Originally published in 1977, I consider Illusions to be a classic I cannot live without. I regard it as one of the "bibles" in my Life. I pull it off the shelf and re-read it periodically never ceasing to enjoy it and to feel inspired by its profound wisdom - playfully couched - all over again. I read the opening parable aloud to anyone who will let me, and I gift it to people whom I think are ready for its deeper implications. I recently paid $4.99 for a used copy and then spent $19.00 to mail it to a new friend in Scotland. If you feel drawn to it, READ IT. It will delight you!

This book is "totally awesome"!! I had carefully avoided it for years (decades, actually) because I thought it would be as complicated as his earlier book, "Jonathon Livingston Seagull". When I finally had to read it for a class, I discovered that it's more fun, much easier to read and understand, and the message is incredible.
Warning: If you actually absorb the message and not just read the words, your life will never be quite the same again.
