It is one of the many repeated covers shown when you go to look at other editions. There only seem to be these TWO other versions...it's a pale fawny cover with curvey lines down the sides.
I DID NOT find this book at all interesting because I didn't believe in what he was talking about. To claim that his SIX Chosen categories were more unifying than divisive was to me ...astounding. On the contrary, these 6 categories all seemed VERY divisive ones: -endless wars; -religious hatreds; - battle of the sexes; transgender has NEVER been an issue until recently not because people accepted it previously, but because they were too wise to mention it, too screwed up to discuss it, and if they did try who listened???; as for more obvious "genders"- well I did mention the Battle of the Sexes, no? yes !! -Race?? - WWII was a racist war ...65 million dead...no definitely NOT a problem!! the extinction of the aborigines and the american indians....no, no problem I can see there!!!???? -Nation, tribe, family...however you divide up the masses....are friendly on the whole, I suppose, but also where troubles start...hardly an example of union as is... -Class...even MORE divisive.
That's about the Lot...and surely there are less divisive ones. Probably...hopefully ???
I might just burn this book slowly as I briefly scan the pages before casting them into the Inferno and meantime soak up the Enlightenment given off by the Bright Flames... it then will have served the Purpose hoped for by the author even if only VERY INDIRECTLY.
I probably missed the WHOLE Point and Purpose of his Endeavour so if he reads this he might be inspired to REwrite it. Sorry, Mate !!! AND I didn't even get around to reading it ...just read alot of the reviews and THAt had people either agreeing with me OR doing an Intellectual Wank. I definitely will browse it now my curiosity has been aroused and I feel a definite empathy with a Bloke who wasted a fair bit of his Life writing IT ! Bad Luck, Mate...I'd take up writing Kids' Books if I were you....more
