Definitely interesting. I mean I'm not sure how much weight it holds against critical inspection but a lot of what was said in the book made sense to me on a surface level. I really liked the anthropological approach to "how we got here" and how our culture has set us up for the type of lives we lead and the failure we've experienced. It got me thinking down some new, and different, paths than I normally do and in my opinion that's what a good book should do.
