Publisher's Summary

Lizards Eat Butterflies unveils David Martin’s deepest passion about how we’re living on this planet and how we could do so much more to improve our experience with a shift in perspective. In a triumph of cutting-edge science, social commentary, and deeply personal life experience, he shows us that, with an alteration in perspective, that which stands in the way of our humanity is an illusion that can be eradicated. 

Far from being a 12-step program - this is the un-program in 12 sections - Lizards Eat Butterflies deconstructs the myths that trap us into victimhood, isolation, and futility. Having traveled the world for three decades of work and with the worldwide film success of Future Dreaming, along with many lectures and workshops, he weaves the narrative of this book to create a tapestry of provoking, thoughtful, and considered reexaminations of our dominant myths and perspective impairments. Lizards is a practical conversation starter to defuse the explosive challenges of inadequacy, indifference, and apathy.

Book was quite interesting, but narrator was monotone....

This book was an interesting listen, but probably a better read. The narrator was completely monotone which made it hard to appreciate the humor or stories the author was trying to convey. Maybe read instead.

Break Out

If one was ever dissatisfied with ones ability to accurately access changes in the world around oneself, this book may be of value. The first chapter attacks many "sacred cows" of modernity and may be a put-off for many readers. This is a way David uses to identify areas of ones life that may be contributing to ones dissatisfaction with life. After that, he focuses in on eight myths that have kidnapped many in our western world and thus opens up possible areas for re-evaluating how we think and thus live life. Peace

Please Listen to this Book

Few books in my life have impacted me as deeply and as quickly as this book. If you were on a journey of discovery questioning not only the nature of the world around you but your own personal story I highly suggest that you engage with this book with open ears open heart and willing to gain insight and perspective that you may be lacking. Namaste.

I won't be finishing, but you may like it.

First rule of writing: Know your audience, the author uses terms like isomorphism, then explains the terms as if his audience couldn't deduce the meaning by the context (rather degrading). Use of voice and humor are present, but the narrative is fairly monotony makes it dry.

a rare gem

Every once in a while, you encounter a book that challenges your most fundamental beliefs in consensus reality and your purpose in life. Even more rare is a book like that with a healthy dose of humor and a few expletives thrown in. This is such a book.
