I expect a lot from Richard Bach. He is one of those few souls who comes across as a dreamer without sounding like annoying self-help authors (like Robin Williams?). So when I found this obscure book in the library, I picked it up without a second thought. The synopsis seemed interesting: 50-year-old Bach finds his 9-year-old self, who asks him to teach whatever he has learned in his life so that he doesn’t have to ‘waste’ his life in trial and error to find out the ‘right’ way of living. Bach is initially reluctant to face the child in him because he has locked the most shameful and painful emotions inside his unconscious mind and lived a life driven by the intellect. But the child shakes up his world and makes him face his these emotions. Bach sets out to teach what he has learned in life to the boy…Richard is an adventurer, a deep thinker and one of those rare people who tries to build a bridge between the intellect and intuition. In the process of teaching, the student becomes the teacher and the teacher becomes the student.
