How many authors in this day and age would be brave enough to state that world peace is attainable? The author outlines how it is not just possible, but required, in order for the human race to protect our amazingly beautiful yet fragile planet Earth.
I really appreciated the insights into how some of our most fundamental ideas about ourselves and our culture can be insidiously contributing to negativity and blocking our search for freedom, peace, and harmony.
After you read this book you will believe that anything is possible, for you and for our world, and you will feel energized to begin the process!
This was such a fascinating book I could not put it down until the end!
Easy to read and understand; the author has the gift to be able touch the soul of human beings.
I have recommended this book to my daughters, other family members and friends; anyone who
is in involved the process of bringing up children.
The author, Kendrick Mercer, speaks of faith or beliefs as something false, whereas scientific findings are truth. However, much of what he introduces as truth is, so far, merely speculation. How we evolved from whatever we evolved from is not proven fact, but merely speculation based upon the limited evidence we have.
Whole Self reads very much like a lecture from a very liberal college professor bent on changing young, impressionable minds, while telling these young people how much their parents have sought to control them through withholding love and affection to get the behaviors the parent desires.
On the plus side, Whole Self is well-written and Mr. Mercer uses many quotes to back up his point of view. The only real problem with these quotes, as far at the book is concerned, is that most of the quotes are printed in a much lighter font than the rest of the print in the book making them difficult to read.
We are unable to give Whole Self more than three stars. This rating is not based so much on the beating he gives all religion, all families, societies and cultures so much as that the term Whole Self is used so often throughout the book that it sounds like the book is actually an advertisement for something called Whole Self.
The book is billed as “A Concise History of the Birth & Evolution of Human Consciousness”. However, it is anything but concise. The reader may want to say, “Get to the point.”
After learning what a difficult childhood Mr. Mercer had, we feel very bad that we cannot rate Whole Self higher. However, honesty and integrity will not allow us to do otherwise.
