I do wish we lived in this world cause I am a big kid and want my own Leviton. Seriously though, if all of Tom's books were to be placed on the the schools' national curriculum, maybe this world would be a little closer to heaven. Thank you Tom for writing this book, from the bottom of my heart.
Another great book from Tom Evans. Again I read this rather quickly in an afternoon but as with Tom's other writings there are many points in the book that trigger thoughts and lead to little discoveries in your own world. Highly recommend.
I loved this book it is thought provoking and it got me deep thinking about what he said . I read it within a good hour couldn't put it down . It changed my perspective and opened me up to new insights . Yet another great book by Tom.
Love this book, it is written with a childlike, expansive imagination that really questions the way we live. It's a very easy read but it appeals more to feeling rather than intellect. I 'know' this stuff, I've read lots of similar ideas, but it has made me question...Do I truly live it?
If anyone with even the slightest background in philosophy, this is really is a complete waste of time. You'd be better off saving your money and buying something like The Wonderbox (http://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B006UU2TDU/ref=oh_aui_d_detailpage_o03_?ie=UTF8&psc=1). Don't waste your money on these ramblings.
What a wonderful little book coming straight out of the left field. Written with panache and a self deprecating air - I could not put this book down and will certainly take the time to read it again much more thoroughly. There are so many incredible nuggets of wisdom and knowledge. One of the best books of philosophy I have read in a long time.
The author says this book was written in 2 weeks and sadly it shows. Its not a bad book and it does make you question our existence. But I felt I took nothing away that made me really think about things and claims such as its impression 'will last a long time' I don't feel are true. It is a quick and easy read and perhaps for that reason it is easy to read it, forget it and move on.
Its worth the money as its so cheap so probably worth checking out yourself.
This We Know is short, elegant and perfectly formed. It asks two simple questions, what do we know and what don't we know? It is thought provoking and enticing in that simplicity and provides the reader with a chance to 'get out of their own brain' for a while to think about some of the bigger questions in life.
On the whole it offers facts and a different perspective with which to both consider and understand them. However, a few points he offers are simply one man's opinion, and given that the rest of the book is so well structured, they could cause some readers to feel that the whole is no longer viable.
If you can look past these though and see the bigger picture that Tom is trying to present, you will almost certainly find yourself with a head full of different thoughts that could just be the catalyst you need to ignite action.
