From government to biology and, ultimately human happiness, Aristotle's philosophy resonates well centuries after being written.

Fascinating, gripping, and intriguing

if you know Minnesota, you'll like the references to St. Paul and lake Phalen.

If you like mysteries, this tale pulls you in with depth and intruige.

And if you believe that our universe intersects with others in various ways, you'll love this story.

Sad, but essential reading about youth

Human exploitation is always tragic. Exploitation of young females is even more deplorable. In the new world of free, ubiquitous porn, most kids have seen some by the time they are 10 years old. While a shocking and disturbing story, understanding it is important for parents and educators everywhere.

Mandatory Reading for the good of humanity<br />

Exceptional writing and impressively narrated, this tragic story should be read by leadership everywhere. While the horrors of war and tragedies of our boys dying in them is sobering enough, the struggles of clinging to life and hope in the most desperate of times that these boys faced should remind us all of the fragile and pathetically absurd coexistence humans have on this little blue planet.

Best read of the summer!

Insightful, intriguing, informative, and entertaining. Best read of the summer. Highly recommended for anyone outside of their comfort zone in the wilderness, career, and crisis.

A fascinating secular perspective...

... deliberating the most difficult of questions about our humanly existence. thought provoking, insightful, and entertaining throughout. a very lengthy read that occasionally belabours previously covered arguments, and sometimes camouflages content with references, the deep psychology and psychoanalysis may bear (for me at least) a second or third read. as an audio book listened to while traveling, inherent with expected missed material for 15-30 seconds here and there when traffic required attention, the flow and presentation of the material wasn't significantly compromised. enjoy!

I am not qualified to comment on the complexities of sociology, nor am I learned enough to understand the entanglements of copyright law, but I can say that this is a story of tragedy, greed, love, passion, and politics.

Interesting segments of information management and Internet history color the tale of a brilliant mind subsumed by a society unable and incapable of accepting his positions however obvious they were.

The book is a must read for sociologists, librarians, industrialists, scientists and talented youth aspiring to make the ultimate difference ... and possibly save humanity from its clear course of repeating history yet again.

Revealing and enlightening

A compelling argument about the
state of humanity, along with even more convincing information about how to evolve from here.
