You may wonder why I have put this into the Miscellaneous category as
well as the Inspiration category. I did, because part of the Misc.
category is humor, and this is one of the funniest books I have ever
read, on top of being one of my all time favorite serious works, quite
an accomplishment. Wright has a wickedly incisive sense of humor and
does a great job of demolishing some of the theories that I have long
held in detestation. It's most endearing.
He explores human destiny in terms of games theory, and I'll tell you,
nothing has given me as much hope for humanity than this book. It's
odd, because Wright seems to have a much more… mechanistic view of the
universe than I do, which is to say, a much less spiritual one. (I'd
love to have a conversation with him about this.) In spite of that, I
couldn't imagine a more convincing case for our continued existence and
I promise you that you will know much more than you did before about our
species and what it is up to than you did before you read this. Wright
has the rare ability to step outside of the… game, we might say, that he
is in and look back at it with a clearer perspective than most of us
ever achieve. An absolute delight.
Most Highly Recommended
