The Hundredth Monkey is not about the hundredth monkey:,
This review is from: The Hundredth Monkey (Mass Market Paperback)
This book concerns itself with issues of much greater importance than the phenomenon of the hundredth monkey; it is about the necessity to recognize the dangers of sum zero conflicts (conflicts that result in a winner and a loser). In an age where the threat of Nuclear war is (hopefully) diminishing, the words of Ken Keyes Jr. still have profound applications to individuals' life styles and global attitudes. The book dwells on the notion that a paradigm shift from "you vs me" to "you and me" is necessary to survive as a species. The book takes an hour to read. Everyone should read this book.
