's review

it was amazing

Incredible text; a book to double check through one's library before purchasing a copy. There is nothing I can add here or elsewhere, and so this is more of a digital note to self than a review. You'll never have to do anything save suppress a philosophical roll of the eyes the next time one hears, "It doesn't make sense why so many ______ people do ________!" Well, it actually makes perfect sense if one is willing to skip the futile political protest and give E.O. Wilson some serious time.

Then again if the majority of human beings took to critical reading, research, and unbiased contemplation of presented facts, they would have much less to complain about. And now that none of the hundreds of thousands who promised to leave the country last November have - Suprise! - decided to stay, it has become glaringly obvious that a good deal of human beings live to complain. And I mean literally live lives that revolve around the act of complaining. Without the ability to complain, be it brought on by enlightenment or some sort of of technological fascist ploy, the suicide rate would indeed skyrocket. And since trust fund money goes into the child's bank account much quicker with the States, we can become witnesses to ceaseless chimpanzee howling for several years, the soundtrack of suicidal delusions gone optimistically haywire, or one can remove one's self from all scenarios whereby one is witness to mass mental retardation, preferably with a big sociobiological masterpiece in one hand, machiato in the other. Yrstruly suggests the latter.
