The reader must be in the "right frame of mind" to appreciate this book. But I enjoyed its message. We are reading this book in our yoga book club.

James Redfield has used simple language, colorful words, and precise thoughts that allowed me to understand the overall meaning of his book. If you are searching for something entertaining yet spiritual, you should read the Celestine Prophecy. This book has answered some questions I have long been searching. The book is 100xs better than the movie. I highly recommend this book.

This book is surprising. Makes you starting thinking! When I finished it, I was looking forward to read the next. I made the good choice to live in a village 10 km out of a big city, and this book made me remember that I don't spend much time in the forest which is near to my house ... A change in my way of thinking took place and I'm still changing ... and all that because of this book. Now I'm reading the 10th Insight ... Many thanks to the writter!!!
Publishers Weekly, 1994-02-14 Redfield's debut is a fast-paced adventure in New Age territory that plays like a cross between Raiders of the Lost Ark and Moses's trek up Mt. Sinai. Originally self-published, the book sold phenomenally, sparked by word of mouth, and may be this year's The Bridges of Madison County --with which it shares some regrettable stylistic similarities. The saga begins when the unnamed middle-aged male narrator whimsically quits his nondescript life to track down an ancient Peruvian manuscript (pretentiously called the Manuscript) containing nine Insights that supposedly prophesy the modern emergence of New Age spirituality. South of the border, he encounters resistance from the Peruvian government and church authorities, who believe the document will undermine traditional family values. While dodging evil soldiers, paranoid priests and pseudoscientific researchers, our hero sequentially discovers all nine Insights during a series of chance encounters. Redfield has a real talent for page-turning action, and his lightweight quest employs auras, energy transfers and other psychic phenomena. But several of the Insights are incredibly vacuous and politically correct, and long stretches of dialogue are banal and cliched. The book ends with the protagonist poised to discover the 10th Insight in a promised sequel. 250,000 first printing; BOMC selection; author tour. (Mar.)
