Self-help 2000

July 10, 1994

A response to a book review by Dick Roraback on "The Celestine Prophecy" ("In Brief," May 15).

Books like "The Celestine Prophecy" are much needed to counteract fear-based ideas, while this review seems to exemplify the negativity illustrated in the book. It contains more information and is easier to read than most self-help books. The abstract fictional story can attract readers interested in novels, adventure and fantasy, while also teaching important concepts. Who knows--one slight shift for one individual could affect many others.

Roraback missed the point! This is a parable clothed in a fantastical adventure. I liked the book very much and it has made quite an impact on me and my friends. We are striving to put its non-new but worthy principles to work to improve our lives. I'm thrilled that it's on the best seller list because it means that many people are striving to become more human and to create much-needed harmony on this planet, if not by 2000 AD, then as soon as possible.
