5.0 out of 5 stars A wonderfully interesting book - seeing the world from a different viewpoint, 21 Dec 2006
This book and the ideas it introduces are rather like going skydiving for the first time. Thrust into a whole new world of knowledge it is at first unnerving, later exhilirating, and then enthusing and encouraging. It gives you a different view of the world from which you will never quite recover. The writing is both clear and erudite, uncluttered with jargon and wonderfully informative. I highly recommend this book to anyone who likes to see things just a little bit differently from the masses.
