I absolutely loved chapters 8 through to the end and this book was worth the ideas in there. The rest of the book for me got into far too many specifics about ancient cultures that were not only boring but far too specific and drawn out, all for the sake of leading to ideas that weren't worth the grind. I understand this author felt the need to legitimize his speculations by demonstrating that he did do research and intelligently constructed his conclusions but it results in a strange combination between fun/informative and an obscure history lesson you never wanted.
In order to facilitate conversations about where we as a species are going we need some basic understanding of where we have been and what may come to pass. This book provides that outline in an uncontroversial way, like the authors previous book, this book can change your perspective from a human centric viewpoint to understanding our species from something more akin to the third person perspective. This wasn't what I was use to thinking like, and I am grateful for the read.
