really liked it

This is a remarkable book. It is a history of human kind from an socio-evolutionary perspective that is exceptionally original, unlike any other I've encountered anywhere. It reads easily and is so interesting that you just want to keep reading. A history that turns history on its head to reveal inescapable facts and realities of life on this planet and of life as human beings. I very highly recommend it. There is no doubt that this book will be recognized as having brought a totally new way of looking at history and at ourselves as a species. The social, economic, political and scientific implications are most impressive. Although I laughed on many occasions while reading its 416 pages, the ending is as disconcerting as the most disconcerting of dystopias, frightening in the scope of the seemingly inevitable but nevertheless unpredictable consequences and directions of our evolution towards the future.
