Publisher Comments:

This is a story for people who follow their hearts and make their own rules...people who get special pleasure out of doing something well, even if only for themselves...people who know there's more to this living than meets the eye: they'll be right there with Jonathan, flying higher and faster than ever they dreamed.


Because he spends so much time perfecting his flying form instead of concentrating on getting food, a seagull is ostracized by the rest of the flock.


The extraordinary experience shared by over a million hardcover readers!

Love this book. Had it read to me as a kid - thought the seagull was silly for crashing all the time. Read it again as a teen - loved how rebellious Jonathan was. Read it as an adult - loved the purpose of life message.

My eighth-grade year was terrible. I was a very awkward 13-year-old. I felt like I was doomed to this awkward existence and resigned myself to the job of odd man out amongst my friends. At a very depressing point that year my father called me into the living room. He had a dusty, nearly collapsed box on the coffee table. He said, "I have something that I want to share with you," as he reached into the box. "I felt just like you when I was young, someone gave me this book, it helped me." Then he carefully set a small paperback book in my hands, Jonathan Livingston Seagull. It was held together with a rubber band because most of the pages were falling out. This book has a special place on my bookshelf now, with a few more rubber bands and tape holding it together. I need to buy a new copy just so I can have a readable copy in the house. I wish this book was required reading in school.

If you know of someone who is at a loss because they are told they are different, this book may help.
It tells us that there are always better options around – if only we try. And “try” – being an operative word – is not such a bad thing. To try to do better, to try to know more, to try to be the best that you can be – are these really too much to ask?
