Synopses & Reviews

Review:

"If Howard Bloom is only 10 percent right, we'll have to drastically revise our notions of the universe....[His] argument will rock your world." Barbara Ehrenreich, National Magazine Award winner and author of Nickel and Dimed

Review:

"Enthralling. Astonishing. Written with the panache of the Great Blondin turning somersaults on the rope above Niagara. Profound, extraordinarily eclectic, and crazy. The most exciting cliff-hanger of a book I can remember reading." James Burke, Creator and host of seven BBC-TV series, including Connections

Review:

"Bloody hell....What a truly extraordinary book. I'm gobsmacked. It's a fast-paced, highly readable, and deeply researched thriller-documentary that grapples with the big issues of the universe....Food for the brain." Francis Pryor, President of the Council for British Archaeology and author of Britain BC

Review:

"For those of us who do not invoke god(s) to explain things, there is a challenge — where did the complexity of the physical and natural world come from?...This deep, provocative, spectacularly well-written book provides some answers....A wonderful book." Robert Sapolsky, MacArthur Foundation "genius grant" winner and author of Why Zebras Don't Get Ulcers

Review:

"Strong. Like a STEAM ROLLER. Impressive. Great." Richard Foreman, MacArthur Foundation "genius grant" winner and founder of the Ontological-Hysteric Theater

Review:

"A deeply engrossing and mind-bending meld of philosophy and science, written with great clarity, humor, and daring." Charles Siebert, Contributing writer, New York Times Sunday Magazine

Review:

"Truly awesome....Bursting with insights and ideas, delivered with delightful verve and zest....A tantalizing, fresh new view of the cosmos for humankind." Dudley Herschbach, Winner of the 1986 Nobel Prize in Chemistry

About the Author

Howard Bloom (Brooklyn, NY) has been called "the Darwin, Newton, and Einstein of the 21st century" and "the next Stephen Hawking." He is the author of three acclaimed books, The Lucifer Principle: A Scientific Expedition into the Forces of History ("mesmerizing" — The Washington Post); The Global Brain: The Evolution of Mass Mind from the Big Bang to the 21st Century ("reassuring and sobering" — The New Yorker); and The Genius of the Beast: A Radical Re-Vision of Capitalism ("impressive, stimulating, and tremendously enjoyable." — James Fallows, National Correspondent, the Atlantic Monthly). A recent visiting scholar at New York University, Bloom is the founder of the International Paleopsychology Project, founder of the Space Development Steering Committee (a group that includes astronauts Buzz Aldrin, Edgar Mitchell), and a founding board member of the Epic of Evolution Society. He has appeared on Good Morning America, The CBS Morning News, CBS Nightwatch, the BBC, and over a hundred other media outlets.
