About the Author

David Jack is that heroic and lonely inner voice of logical outrage that quietly burns inside us all. Sarcastically speaking, he/she/it is a fashionably pan-racial, pan-ethnic, and pan-religious hermaphrodite who espouses all ideological and political beliefs and is utterly incapable on an almost genetic level of ever, ever offending anyone, anywhere, at any time. He/She/It is a manipulative and politically correct, so-called "humanitarian" and thus immune from any and all moral condemnation whatsoever. He/She/It goes to all the right parties, sleeps with all the right people, maintains all the right "friendly blackmail" information, and is also thus exempt from individual accountability and probably an excellent candidate for a Nobel Prize of some sort. He/She/It lives in the Northern Hemisphere. --This text refers to the Paperback edition.

Format: Hardcover
Anyone who is looking for a wider lens perspective of reality would do well to read Thou Shalt Not Think. I disagree with another reviewer that it is the "same old same old". In actuality, Jack provides refreshing new perspectives, analogies, and solutions moving into the future. The value of the Rennaisance Man has all but diminished in contemporary society. We live in the Age of the Narrow-Minded Expert. Therefore, it is great to see a writer/thinker expertly construct a mozaic of philosophy, science, and sociology, and weave those topics together with heart, sould, and even-handedness. Even if you don't see eye to eye with DJ on certain topics, this is no reason to throw the baby out with the bath water. His core message about choosing sanity over vanity, keeping an open-mind geared toward growth, maintaining a child-like attitude in the face of a soul-crushing world built on conformity, is much needed addition to the otherwise bleak intellectual landscape of the 21st century.

The content will provide you with helpful information for nearly all aspects of your life. If you want to know more about philosophy, mythology, religion, intelligence, mating, politics, mental health, medicine, feminism and LOGIC then read this book.
Articulate and humourous writing style, very enjoyable and amusing.
Thou shalt not think helped me to understand my own mind and the minds of other people, and has enabled me to think more logically.

It reflected my philosophies on life and was an entertaining read. While I agree with 99.9% of the viewpoints, the only thing I would like to see would be for the author include a few more positive things to talk about. The world is not completely horrible. There are those extremely rare few who do make the world a better place.

Mr. Jack's book is simply a different slant attacking the establishment and I agree with a couple of his view points.
His issue with the mental health and drug industries is right on and I'll further state they are turning the USA into a pill popping nation.

I bought this book because it was plugged in an issue of Discover magazine, so I was expecting a book with a certain level of science based theory. This is not the case, and in defense of Mr. Jack, he doesn't make any claims that it is. Chapters address religion, hate crimes, sadism, and basically everything else that wrong with the human race. However, there is not a single citation to support any of his statements, thus reducing them to nothing but opinion. If you are looking for someone to confirm your beliefs on why the world sucks, it may be worth the time. If you read to learn new things, don't waste your time. You can get the equivalent of this book by spending some time in the bar listening to the guy next to you complain about what's wrong with humanity. My worst fear is that readers of this book can't think for themselves and adopt Mr. Jack's dismal view of our planet.
