Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Instead of soaring and diving though space, passengers on this flight must be prepared to cruise slowly, making several stops to look at their motivation and lifestyles as the Bachs look at their own." — Detroit Free Press.

"This is a strange and thought-provoking fantasy from the man who gave us Jonathan Livingston Seagull and Illusions, one that is imaginative, playful, and in places, startling in concept." — The Anniston Star.

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
Under the spell of quantum physics, Bach and his wife Leslie are catapulted into an alternate world in which they exist simultaneously in many different incarnations. `` These little homilies can either be uplifting or mightily boring, depending on the reader's point of view,'' wrote PW. (Nov.)
Joyce Cohen
''One'' presents a number of provocative speculations....But in the hands of Richard Bach, they quickly plunge into the realm of the asinine....To appreciate the spirit of this book, you must think metaphorically. Just as a television has many channels, everyone has many lifetimes that are going on simultaneously - it's just that you're tuned into only one at a time. Give yourself a gold star for patience if you actually make it through to the final pages, where the Bachs realize that all of us are really a single person. -- New York Times
