5.0 out of 5 stars "unrelenting fervor", October 24, 2011
This is an astonishing book and Chris Dixon is a phenomenal writer. He has crafted facts into fable and passion into allegory.
This timeless book will continue to deliver satisfaction and revelation to future readers.
The chapter headings from "Moby Dick"and "The Odyssey" are not affectations. They are part of the graceful current that the writer uses to
propel through a flow of Nature, Science, Philosophy and emotion. Like Victor Hugo (and Melville), he uses the epic story as the bait that
makes us hungry to be armed with knowledge not only about the grand follies and supreme exhilarations of men but of the World and our
meager time in it.
Some of the principals seem to value the gift of Life so highly as to honor it way beyond their utmost. I leave it to them to represent me and human capability in their superlative communions with the Almighty Force of Life.
Chris Dixon's love for his subject is contagious. His ability to describe wave after vast wave making each important and compelling is in itself deeply satisfying.
My copy has kefir, pesto and larb gai stains on it. I wanted to stay immersed in it and not even come up for air.

5.0 out of 5 stars Intuitive and revealing, December 12, 2006
This book is both charming and educational. I recommend it to anyone

curious about how the traits and motives of their friends and non-friends are

formed. The author has thoughtfully researched and presented a logical way of

comprehending the conflicts of personalities with gentle humor. Elizabeth Wagele's

map for self-exploration and understanding is engaging and not at all daunting. She

encourages us to embrace and not fear that deep mysterious world we all harbor and to rely

upon it as a source of rejuvenation and knowledge. Introverts are too often made to

feel socially inadequate and vulnerable. This book is a clear call for both introverts

and 'extraverts' to find the simple satisfaction and harmony that abides intuitively

within us all.
