THIS IS A WARNING REVIEW:

Twice this week I have ordered this to get the 25th Anniversary edition and twice now I am having to process a return. The book deserves all the praise you will read on it. There's nothing knew I can add to why it deserves high praise. That is why 5 stars.

BUT, if you want the new edition with the extra content, you won't get what is advertised here, at least not right now (regardless of what an Amazon agent tells you, as I learned the hard way just now).

The old edition is great, so if you don't mind getting that version, then all is fine.

Amazon had promised on on the first order this was a rare mistake and the new stock was up and that if I ordered again, I would get what is being advertised here. So this is a heads up for those buying another copy of this book to get the new edition. They are not sending the edition you see advertised here. The photo you see is from the second order this week, which was supposed to be a replacement for the first order that sent me the wrong edition and I was told would the error would not repeat if I ordered again.

This fascinating novel consists almost entirely in a telepathic Platonic-like dialog between a non-human (a gorilla) who plays the role of Socrates and his pupil, who is the narrator of the story. The gorilla criticizes the human race for their belief that the goal of creation was for humans to step out of evolution and lord it over the rest of Creation. No other animal makes war. No other animal destroys the ecosystem. I think this is also the theme of Moby Dick, which is about a human named Ishmael. While reading I kept thinking of D. H. Lawrence’s suggestion that the highest a human being can strive for is to simply be a good animal.
The most interesting part of the book is it’s reinterpretation of the Adam and Eve story. Instead of spending their lives under the Tree of Life, they sinfully ate from the forbidden Tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil, making it possible for them to replace the gods in determining the fate of all the rest of the creation. This original sin made it possible for us to have smart phones, TVs, indoor plumbing, and airplanes, but it also has led us into an inauthentic existence full of meaningless, feelings of insufficiency, and constant anxiety. The primordial hunter-gatherers were far happier. They had plenty to eat, worked only a few hours a day, and didn’t worry about tomorrow. Yet we cling to the things that make us miserable as we spend, take more than we need, and decimate the planet.

When I first heard about this book, I thought it sounded strange. A gorilla that writes an ad in the paper wanting to teach someone about life? Interesting concept, not sure it is for me. Well I was talked into it, and I was certainly glad I was. There are very few books that spark my curiosity. When I started this book, I wasn't sure what to expect. I felt as if this gorilla taught me more about life than most people in my actual lifetime. The insight Daniel Quinn represents is beautiful, intense, and scary. I will read this novel many times since I feel I can always learn things from it each time.

I really really like this book. Thought provoking and insightful, compassionate and compelling. And of course a narrating gorilla. Provokes the reader into thinking about what humanity is doing, where we are going, and what space we are leaving and creating for other forms of life. I'd recommend this book to any environmentalist, fans of Socratic dialogue and teachers who want to present some complex concepts about our modern civilized society in a slightly more palatable form that your typical non fiction essays.

A wonderful Socratic dialogue about why things are the way they are in modern civilized society with a focus on how we got here. I don't want to spoil it for you; it's a wonderful trip through history and philosophy and religion that will leave your eyes permanently open. I only wish our "leaders" would read it and apply the insights to be gained, but this is a book for everyone. Highly recommended.

I really liked this book despite the rather implausible story line, though its true value lies in the underlying message it contains. The premise is that we humans (most of us anyway) consider ourselves to be the epitome of evolution, thus giving us the right to exploit anything and everything in our environment. I have long felt that the tribal life of indigenous peoples around the world is more in line with Nature than the lifestyle of industrialized nations, which is pointed out by Ishmael. I also thought his ideas about feeding the poor are valid in terms of the Laws of Nature, although I can see why those ideas would offend or outrage many people. Basically we all need to become more in tune with Nature in our lives and realize humans are not the supreme beings we think we are. All life is sacred. I would go one step further and say that if some sort of alien intelligence were looking down on earth, then human life would appear to be a cancer on this planet. We fit all the criteria of cancers - i.e. we are reproducing at an exponential rate and we are destroying our host (i.e. the environment).

This book is, from a practical viewpoint, what we would consider impossible. A gorilla teaching a man in telepathic conversation. But what he teaches him is a lesson our world of humans needs to hear. What needs to happen in order that we humans stop destroying our earth? Ishmael knows and now I know. I wish this book would be required reading in high schools throughout the world, so that everyone of us could get this message.
