Ishmael is an ape, an intellectual ape. This ape proceeds to teach a college professor through telepathy about evolution, the environment and philosophy.

While some of the ideas were interesting and worthwhile, some were repetitive to say the least and some were downright condescending. Some of these themes are well-founded and others just plain silly as is a gorilla chewing on a stick and pontificating.

I am an average person and would say this is an average book. This book will not dramatically change my life unlike evidently untold others. This book was made for the philosophy and environmental professors of the world. An okay read.

My mom, AceofHearts, passed away from breast cancer on September 17, 2013. Aside from being one of the best people I know, she was an avid reader and took immense pleasure in Bookcrossing, her book club, and reading many great books.

I will be releasing this in my mom's memory.

It's an honour to find a book dedicated to your memory, Ace of Hearts, and may all the books you find "up there" be 10 out of 10's!
I changed the location to Oakville, to answer "Where did you catch the book?", but I think it'll just default back to Acton, where I live (well…in the country, outside Acton). Anyway….I happened to be visiting friends in Oakville on a lovely, clear night, and decided to check out the (former?) OBCZ at the Navy/Lakeshore 2nd Cup. Tah dah! I found one book that piqued my interest, and it was a Bookcrossing book to boot! I worked at Canada's first "green" living magazine for 15 years and continue to work on its sister publication, Harrowsmith's Almanac, so I am looking forward to finding out what this book is all about. Some nice reviews from "green", artsy towns like Portland, OR and Austin, TX, and one from Whole Earth News, but also from LA and Washington. I do try and do my bit enviro-wise, including nagging hubby to please stop Saran-wrapping everything, and re-use Ziplock bags that aren't totally gross. As far as not using gasoline anymore…it is so frustrating that we've had the technology for years to NOT depend on oil & gas, yet nobody is furthering the cause enough to make alt-energy cars a reality for the average Joe (& Josephine). And now….the west is stepping back into a war in Iraq…aieeeee.

PS: I think this would make a great release at this year's Word on the Street Festival.
