This is what makes Look for Our Mother and Our Father a hard book to read. Who wants to think they are wrong? It is difficult to surrender your beliefs, and that is what this book requires. Many people think of themselves as open-minded, and so they think that open-minded people believe what they believe. But I think to be open-minded, you have to be able to hear something which is the opposite of what you believe and to consider whether it may, in fact, be true...
Per the author, "I wrote this because it's something I wish I'd known at a younger age. I think I would have lived a much different life if I had been aware. As I say in the book, `I have seen the illusion of my culture, but have not yet replaced it with reality.' Now I see that there is a screen hiding my view, but I still don't see what's behind it. However, at least I am no longer adding more decorations to the screen and pretending that this makes it more real and adds to our knowledge. At least I'm finally glimpsing what is around the back."
There are ideas in here that even a young college student would resist, because they have already learned to think inside our culture. However, if you can finish it and see the big picture, I believe you will find it will be worth the journey.

This is so ignorant that it almost does not deserve comment except to reiterate the fact that the author endlessly make statements that are blatantly false.
Remember this is an ebook, the author did not write this on banana leaves but probably on a laptop, to be read on a handheld ELECTRONIC device.
Who ever gave this book 5 Stars must have some financial or fanatic back ground to even like this mess. I found it hateful and full of spin. Read morePublished on July 2, 2011 by M. W. Castelao
