Publisher's Summary

The Lucifer Priciple is a revolutionary work that explores the intricate relationships among genetics, human behavior, and culture to put forth the thesis that "evil" is a by-product of nature's strategies for creation and that it is woven into our most basic biological fabric. Though this argument is not a new one - it has been brought forth by such great historical figures as St. Paul, Thomas Hobbes, and Raymond Dart - Howard Bloom here takes fresh data from a variety of sources and shapes it into a lens through which listeners can reinterpret the human experience.

    Bloom always delivers. His insights give identity to the human race and reveals why we do what we do. Fascinating!

    "Incredible analysis about humans"

    This book is so complete by integrating different specialties all together, making an only but complex principle that could explain humans behavior. The performance was natural and let me be captivated by the content. Thank you for making this book available.

    "Insightfully thrilling"

    I first picked this book up when I was 15 and am still amazed at how well Howard bloom is able to capture the memes and ideology that was already beginning to for in my head. A companion in the journey of the search for truth at all cost and truly a "blessing" and Gift to have his insight and bravery to proclaim such insights, among us. Thank you Howard, your the best.

    "A most profound assessment of society..."

    I would say as grim at times this book can be at times; it was a refreshing look at the way we look at the concept of society. A must read...or a must listen.

    "Scientific or Politic."

    The scientific portions of the book are just preambles and conditioning for the political and propaganda the book brazenly displays. Almost all the propaganda in the book is mere rhetoric and overflowing with fallacious arguments.
    He thinks "our" society's shit don't stank!
