Praise
"As suspenseful, inventive and socially urgent as any fiction or nonfiction book you are likely to read this or any other year."
"From now on I will divide the books I have read into two categories--the ones I read before 'Ishmael' and those I read after."
"My working hypothesis is that this book is actually a theological work....For some reason it has been superficially structured as a novel. It is a comprehensive and devastating analysis of 'civilized' man framed as a Socratic dialog between a man and a gorilla."
"Wonderfully earnest and engaging. Think of Robert Pirsig in 'Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance' of B.F. Skinner in 'Walden Two.'"
From the Publisher
First Line "Ishmael" has always been much more than a book to me.
Annotation A man and a gorilla set out on an intellectual adventure and in the process define what it means to be a human being.
Editors Note A man and a great ape conduct a series of philosophical conversations in a work that presents a new vision of evolution and humankind and asks the question: does the Earth belong to humans, or do humans belong to the Earth?
