It is fascinating to learn how a person can be so manipulative and others under that person's influence, so subservient. Fascinating yet obviously, terrible. Hopefully this tendency does not lurk in too many of us. Karen Peakes does a masterful job of delivery.

This is a complex book and you may have to exercise patience to get through it but the end is worth the journey. A very troubling account of government weakness, secrecy, complacency and self serving. Homo sapiens: a rather pathetic species.

Humans, not so sapient. Given the conditions, what animals we can be! This is probably the MO for many governments across this sick earth.

Absolutely loved this!!

Some say that history cannot be rewritten. On the contrary, this series illustrates so well that it can not only be written but rewritten and edited according to who wishes to do so. A truly fascinating account of this reality!!

A confirmation of what most of us have known since day one. Mary obviously has a bone to chew but the bone is as hard and impenetrable as Fort Knox. I wish her the peace that her awful inheritance makes it impossible to find.

Even though I have a substantial background in reproductive biology, this book not only strengthened my interest in the subject but provided insight into mysteries I had never even dreamed of. The author is clearly as described by others "...a polymath". What a wonderful contribution to biological sciences. Dr Moalem's book should be a obligatory reading for every student in biological sciences. Dr Moalem also does an excellent job of reading his own book; usually a red flag. A keeper!

Boring as a text book!

This book is highly authoritative with regard to anthropology but unfortunately falls very far short on the entertainment scale. I love history and learning when it is as dry as this, I simply cannot listen further. Despite the content of the book, January LaVoy does a great performance.

An aspect of Herman Wouk you must experience

We know his war novels so well; so too the stories of Israel. this is completely different. A long book, but be patient and you will be rewarded. Nick Sullivan does a MASTERFUL job, simply marvelous.

Richard Wagamese was a true artist, painting Mona Lisas with almost every poignant brushstroke. I will enjoy this book again.

Inspiration for care givers. Every medical, dental, veterinary and allied health practitioner should read this...then re-read it.
