5.0 out of 5 stars Arts or Science must we choose, 28 Feb. 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Harmony: A New Way of Looking at Our World (Hardcover)
A quick dip into this book is all that is necessary to establish that it is written by the Prince and not ghost written in his name. The terminology the enthusiasm and the vast accumulated sometimes first hand knowledge, which only one such as the Prince would possess; is demonstrated throughout. The author accepts that he has his critics which he refers to as the ''usual suspect but is not deterred.

The book is a balance between an academic work and a dose of realism. It is not a book which can be read from begining to end in one go it requires time.

Many of the ideas put forward by the author fly in the face of people such as some academics and those who believe that science is the answer to all. The author questions the effect on society of technology such as computers as the 'fait accompli' with which so many are forced.

This book reminds the reader to appreciate the beauty that exists whilst is still does.

Anyone who considers themselves to be well informed should spend time with this book with an open mind and then, ask themselves,

"Have I got my priorities right?"
