Some time ago my blog-buddy James recommended I read Ishmael, by Daniel Quinn. I now have and thoroughly enjoyed it, even if I didn't entirely agree with all its conclusions. I'll have a more substantial post on this later when I've had time to digest it a little bit. For the time being suffice it to say it's about ecology and human history and civilization and the Neolithic Revolution.

Also a gorilla.

A phenomenal book! I'm interested to hear what your thoughts are on it. My mom (devout born-again) and I have spent many an hour discussing it. It's one of the most influential books in my life.

When I get time I'll do a post of my own thoughts on it for comparison.

I'm a big Ishmael fan. I've been for about six years now. And if you're ever interested in seeking out other "like-minded" Ishmael readers, please feel free to visit IshCon.

Thank you,
