The author has great command of language
on January 3, 2015
WARNING! A misleading title! The book addresses biological being, material, no relevance to spiritual, purpose etc..
I found this book through Sam Harris recommendations, but hugely disappointing!.
The author has great command of language, although may be difficult to understand for less fluent readers.
Lack of imagination, lack of holistic knowledge, no deeper understanding, just endless biological ramble etc... Example: In search of a purpose the author looks for a goal, rather than examine the path etc...
As a researcher of truth, spirituality and meaning of life I was expecting to learn something new, at least be presented with an inspiring new argument, yet this was not to be.
I like his definition of life, but this book has only reinforced my suspicion, that hard-core scientists have no desire to understand the implications of human consciousness... as I said, a misleading title, no offense meant to the author...
