Dr Perera’s Rating:
The novel is set in the ancient ruins of Machu Picchu, with the main characters surviving unimaginable vicissitudes. Redfield’s tale gives us a deep understanding of the limitations of science, and includes astonishing reflections on human nature. The story is about discovering Insights contained in a long-lost manuscript. Redfield cleverly reveals only portions of each insight, and uses the story to provide a description or explanation of each for the reader. He reveals only nine insights and hints at a tenth which is the subject of his next book: The Tenth Insight: Holding the Vision. The Insights provide valuable life lessons and useful strategies for daily living.
