Editorial Reviews

Review

'What this book of books, in fact this greatest of all books, does is take humanity from a state of bewilderment about the nature of human behaviour and existence to a state of profound understanding of our lives--understanding that drains away all the pain, suffering, confusion and conflict from the world. This is it -- THE BOOK THAT SAVES THE WORLD!' - Professor Harry Prosen, former President of the Canadian Psychiatric Association
 
'Nothing Dr. Prosen has said about the immense importance of this book is an exaggeration. This is the book all humans need to read for our collective wellbeing.' - Dr Scott D. Churchill, Professor and former Chair, Psychology Department, University of Dallas
 
"I've never felt the world more threatening, more fractious, more fissiparous, more febrile...We need to think, we need new ideas, we need proselytizers, we need obsessed people, which I think Jeremy is. We need him to be questioned. We need FREEDOM to be argued, we need it to be read and talked about and understood. It may be right, it may be wrong. But you need someone as committed as Jeremy to trying to understand what gets us here... Jeremy made me think afresh and think differently. I hope he does it with you." - Sir Bob Geldof, humanitarian and musician
 
'This book is actually written from a position outside of the human condition. It is just amazing; Griffith walks freely through all the psychosis of our troubled human condition and with such freedom is able to explain everything about us' - Tim Macartney-Snape, biologist, mountaineer and twice-honoured Order of Australia recipient
 
'You never forget the moment when you realise this really does explain the human condition.' - Brian Carlton, journalist, commentator and broadcaster
 
'The sequence of discussion in FREEDOM is so logical and sensible, providing the necessary breakthrough in the critical issue of needing to understand ourselves.' - Dr David Chivers, anthropologist and former President of the Primate Society of Great Britain
 
'How could we be good when all the evidence seems to unequivocally indicate that we are a deeply flawed, bad, even evil species?" Clearly, it's not an easy question to answer, and the author succeeds in not treating the subject lightly. He includes a plethora of material for readers to absorb, including poetry, song lyrics, information on bonobos ("humans' closest relatives"), and thoughts from thinkers from Plato to Søren Kierkegaard to E.O. Wilson... an undeniably intriguing, well-organized investigation.' - Kirkus Reviews
 
'Impressively well written, persuasively argued, deftly organized and accessibly presented, "Freedom: The End of the HumanCondition" is a compelling and articulate read throughout. Highly recommended for both community and academic library collections, "Freedom: The End of the Human Condition" will prove to be of compelling interest to both academia and the non-specialist general reader.' - MidwestBook Review

About the Author

Jeremy Griffith spent six years in the wilds of Tasmania where he undertook the most thorough investigation ever into the plight of the Tasmanian Tiger, concluding that it was extinct. During this time, aged 27, Jeremy shifted his exploratory focus to humanity, which has remained his life's preoccupation for the last 40 years. He started writing about the human condition in 1975, established the World Transformation Movement in 1983 (originally established as the Foundation for Humanity's Adulthood), published his first book, Free: The End of the Human Condition in 1988, his second book, Beyond the Human Condition in 1991, and his bestselling third book, A Species In Denial, in 2004.
