    1. a mea culpa for me and Ruby once upon a time, a long time ago, i was an Entertainment Insurance Underwriter for AIG well, a junior underwriter i got to read a lot of scripts, i dealt with a lot of famous people, i got paid a lot of money it was a time of much partying, much coke, an expense account, 1.5 assistants, and daily hangovers one day i learned that i had written a movie policy that was so successful, so full of clever exclusions to coverage that it managed to cut off an entire family fr [...]

    2. This is the 2nd time I ve read this book And while I m pretty sure most of it is fictional, I still think it carries some valuable insights so I want to summarize them in the 9 insights of the book and my understanding of them o 1 Noticing the coincidences in life is the first step The I become aware of coincidences, the I ll become aware of a universal force behind them.o 2 This is about putting my awareness into a longer historical perspective Imagining myself as a part of all humanity, and [...]

    3. Utter rubbish from start to finish This is the literary equivalent of a Ponzi scheme He made loads of money based on fraud Nothing there If you have a brain, use it, and don t go near this book.

    4. I resent when a writer who has a lot of opinions about, ya know, stuff, decides that everyone should hear about all the stuff he s thinking about, but then realizes that maybe it would be boring as all get out, so then decides that if he turns all the stuff he s thinking into a novel, then maybe people will read it This way he still gets to spout rhetoric at his readers, but couch it in fiction No, sir, you cannot bend fiction to your evil will Just because you put something within quotation mar [...]

    5. I read this book at the end of 1996 or around beginning of 1997 I read about it in a magazine I used to get that I loved called, Catalist The magazine went out of print sorry to say because I loved that magazine and still have all my issues less then 2 years worth published The Celestine Prophecy woke me up I had been sleepwalking in the world I woke up after I read this book and realized there was so much I was suppose to be doing in this world I realized that so many times have had things hap [...]

    6. Someone gave my wife a hard cover copy of this book when she was in the hospital I picked it up and read perhaps the first 50 or so pages while I was sitting in her hospital room, then I skimmed the rest of it and tossed it in the trash What I saw was poor writing, misguided ideas, lack of structure and in general a waste of paper and ink, all in the guise of a novel of some sort If I d had anything else to read, maybe the back of a cereal box or the instructions for operating the medical equipm [...]

    7. I really hoped this book would be as good as everyone says it is I was totally underwhelmed Painfully jejune plot, paper thin characters, pedestrian prose, and for what A handful of ridiculous insights about how our expectations affect the physical world and how we fight for each other s energy Maybe if I sit down and meditate toward this book I can make it vanish permanently.

    8. I take from this book every time I read it My original review I ve read this book a few times, the first time after it had been given to me by a rather hippy ish friend of mine The first time, I wanted to throw it in the bin Written badly with two dimension characters Flaws in the plot and the historical information and lots of the ideas were wishy washy Given my reaction to the first read, I can t really say what made me pick it up a second time Maybe I was feeling wishy washy lol On the secon [...]

    9. Actual footage of me reading this book It was the only book available to me during a recent stay with some relatives down south, as I d stupidly left the stack of paperbacks I d planned to bring on the kitchen table at home It s really really good if you like crap I m sorry if this book is really important to any of you So, so sorry.Just not my thing To each their own.

    10. I cannot express in words how much I hated this book Only retching noises will suffice Several people whom I love recommended this book to me and I resisted until I was backpacking through Brazil and had nothing to read except a few romance novels in Dutch which I can neither speak nor read I should have made the best of the Dutch.

    11. The Celestine Prophecy outlines the spiritual beliefs of James Redfield, a New Age religious thinker It is presented as an adventure story, where an American protagonist is searching Peru for nine insights from a mysterious manuscript The book is divided into nine chapters, each focused on one specific insight Essentially, the adventure story lets Redfield s main character move around and meet a variety of people who explain the key tenets of Redfield s spiritual philosophy, one by one That phil [...]

    12. This book encourages a spiritual but not religious awakening The flimsy, implausible storyline and the not so well crafted dialogue is only a device to present the pillars of this New Age philosophy There is no plot and no tension It is apparent from the beginning that the Nine Insights will be revealed, one by one, in order, at a predictable pace, and will not be rigorously defined or defended In one sense, they cannot be defined, because they represent non propositional knowledge that is, thin [...]

    13. I haven t read this book since I was about 19 I remember quite liking it I hadn t read anything like it before and it made me think really deep thoughts So I have to give it credit for planting a seed As someone who dislikes the term new age, but is partial to many new agey ideas, I guess there was a higher possibility I would like this than others I am not religious, but I am spiritual and know that there is than just the physical world we typically see I say know because I have directly and l [...]

    14.

    15. A client of mine once told me how wonderful and life changing this book was, and I thought, huh, I ll have to give it a read Thank goodness I checked it out from the library rather than spending any money on it Lots of new age nonsense here nothing that struck me as both profound and truthful It s not even an interesting story, viewed purely as fiction.Come to think of it, that client was kind of an odd duck.

    16. The Celestine Prophecy tells of following your innermost intuition which is truly ironic as I feel downright jipped after not having listened to my very own quivering string not leaving this rot to rot upon its dusty, underused shelf.In this adventure yes, adventure people of all non distinct types intersect and learn the awful outstanding lesson NO MATTER WHAT OR HOW , THOU SHALT BE CATERED TO filling in one long lecture interspersed throughout the dull as s t narrative as spurts of half baked [...]

    17. An unbelievable book, that can be read one of two ways, you can simply read it as an adventure story of a man struggling to understand what it is he wants from life, or, as I have done, you can read it as a self help book What a self help book it is It really encourages you to look at yourself and how you see your life both its past present and future It gives you insights on how to take a positive and active approach to your life This book can change your life if you let it.

    18. i read this in high school and i remember liking it, but if i read it now all grown up, i would probably find it silly.

    19. Favorite Quotese basic stuff of the universe, at its core, is looking like a kind of pure energy that is malleable to human intention and expectation in a way that defies our old mechanistic model of the universe as though our expectation itself causes our energy to flow out into the world and affect other energy systems.The human perception of this energy first begins with a heightened sensitivity to beauty.We humans have always sought to increase our personal energy in the only manner we have [...]

    20. Some relevent and feel good ideas rooted mostly in the mystical and esoteric branches of various world religions are choked by a sugary new age coating and a completely irrelevent mystery novel story line There is no story, the characters walk along, find a page and read it The relevent contents of this book could be handed out in a one page pamphlet.

    21. The only reason I own this piece of idiotic dreck is because QPBC sent it to me as the book of the month and I wasn t quick enough off the mark about sending it back OK I just needed to make that perfectly clear I do actually have a brain, and this book is clearly aimed at those who do not.

    22. WTF This book is the worst kind of sci fi pseudo spirituality There are enough real awesome things in the world we don t need this This book presents itself as non fiction, and although the author repeated stated after the fact that is purely invented, hoards of people began following the teachings in this book It s nearly unreadable, but it will give you insight into what the masses are loooking for a way to make your life better and change the world Too bad it s fake i guess I would reccomend [...]

    23. In many ways, The Celestine Prophecy was the book that opened the door to the New Age movement in books Before this book, finding a book on spirituality meant reading longhair books that often spoke in ethereal terms Finding any of these such books meant traveling to a large bookstore, or, by chance, coming upon a hide away shop that specialized in such things The Celestine Prophecy blew open the publishing door by staying on the bestseller lists for years Why Because it offered an enjoyable tal [...]

    24. I was told to read this passed down book from a good friend of mine As she gave this book to me she said, This book changed my outlook on life and I hope it does for you too The Celestine Prophecy is a book that is not only inspirational but also motivational too As I read the uniquely written passages about how one can percieve things differently in life, I felt that this book can turn a negative perspective into a positive by just reading the first Insight This book is about discovering an inn [...]

    25. A quick factual note before my review The Maya didn t live in Peru Period Mayan civilization existed primarily in Mexico as well as the present day nations of Guatemala, Belize, northern El Salvador and western Honduras Not Peru I ll say that again No Maya In Peru Do some basic research next time Redfield This book is a cross between a sales pitch, and a religious text pushing what are apparently the religious beliefs of James Redfield Each chapter is an outline followed by a review of a particu [...]

    26. This is possibly the worst book in print Since I haven t read EVERYTHING in print, I cannot say definitively, but I would bet at least a packet of ketchup this piece of trash isn t worth a better wager that the cleaning of the Agean stables would be easier than finding a poorly written stinking heap of nonsense.

    27. I remember when this book was all the rage Like it was telling people something new, like it was real It was a giant hoax, wasn t it The movie was some god awful Lifetime movie ish crap, too, wasn t it enpedia wiki The_CeleThis kind of book reminds me of The Secret, by Rhonda Byrnes Rather hokey, new agey philosophys that have a cultish vibe to them Of course, this isn t technically a self help book, but a lot of people treated it like one.In the end though, the things Redfield describes in his [...]

    28. I picked up this little gem at a thrift store, but I threw it away when I was done just to make sure that other bargain hunters didn t suffer as I did Cultish, New agey garbage akin to The Secret, Scientology, or Madonna s version of Kaballah Coincidentally, I purchased Left Behind on the same day I would need to flip a coin to determine which was worse On the upside, there is something truly satisfying for me about the sense of superiority I get from reading an incredibly stupid book.

    29. Really an excellent book Definitely mystical but helpful It reminded me a bit of the Da Vinci Code in that you traveled along with the main character on this quest but instead of it being a quest to find some religious artifact or truth that is external, this quest was internal about finding something about yourself It is written in such a way that you journey on this quest with the main character but his quest is your quest I have found that this can be true for almost anything though All of ou [...]

    30. 2016This is now about the 3rd or 4th time I ve read this book and it probably won t be my last Every now and again I just pick it up and off I go I ll definitely plough through the next 3 books but probably won t put them on again, I guess I ll keep them all as my guilty secret 2011I loved this book when I read it a good few years ago I enjoyed the spiritual factors behind the Indiana Jones type storyline I went on to read the rest of James Redfield s books but this one remained a firm favourite [...]
