Book review
Jonathan Livingston Seagull, is one of Richard Bach's masterpieces. The Book speaks a lot with effective use of words. It would be one of the most inspiring books that you would ever read in your lifetime. 
     
It is a short story, based on the life of a Seagull -'Jonathan' who , unlike other Seagulls didn't live to eat. Jonathan rather enjoyed flying throughout the day and wanted to master it. The other Seagulls tried to prove him wrong.
His last priority of the day was food. He would dedicate his entire day in experimenting the different ways of flying ,learning a bit more everyday.
This made the other Seagulls of his flock angry and jealous, so they kicked him out of their flock. However, that didn't bother him at all. He dedicates his entire life to master flying and one day, he is invited to join his flock back. There after he returned, this time honored with respect and spent his entire life in propagating his hard earned knowledge.
"Richard Bach , with this book does two things
He gives me flight,
He makes me young."
