5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Book, 19 Mar. 2010
I couldn't praise this book enough! I have the upmost respect for the author who's clearly spent along time and a lot of effort researching and writing the book. For such a broad scope, the hypothesis always rings true, and fits like a jigsaw into what I was already beginning to feel about the world today. It was so refreshing to read a book written confidently and proposing a world view which covers all aspects of thinking, something many academics wouldn't dare do. What's more amazing is that I rarely had to question or doubt what the author was saying.

I expected to skip by much of the brain science in part 1 but the author keeps it accessible and interesting, interweaving with philosophy and physchology. The second part is as brilliant as I hoped, providing a concise history of the western world and how it relates to his hypothesis on the right and left brain. My favourite part is on the Reformation and the Romantic period, although all of it is exceedingly interesting! Anyone interested in the religious aspect should read GK Chesterton, I'd be very interested to know if the author has read Orthodoxy by Chesterton as the first couple of chapters say exactly the same thing about the modern world, written 80 years ago.
