Sometimes you've got to wonder...,
This review is from: The Secret History of the World (Paperback)
Nice ideas and if it is ALWAYS remembered that this is a SUBJECTIVE history, based upon what it felt like for humanity to develop through the periods of time discussed in the book, this isn't a bad book.
Don't take it too seriously. Jonathan Black doesn't. If science could back up that it is possible, through developing spiritual awareness, that we can read peoples minds, call fire from the sky and generally manipulate the materialistic world with only our mind, this book would stand up a lot better. Until science finds those loopholes in nature that allow us to be Gods, this is an entertaining read with some nice ideas of how it felt to go through the growing pains into sentient beings.
