I just finished reading the novel Ismael by Daniel Quinn, and it blew me away.
The book was recommended to me by Ray Anderson, Chairman of Interface. He’s read it ten times and it has changed his paradigm about EVERYTHING. I’m sure I’ll read it a few times too – as the book has had the same effect on me. The book is highly controversial and not for people that have sacred cow beliefs. You have to read this with an open mind and a thoughtful heart to “get it.”
I don’t want to spoil the suspense, but by the end you will understand why man is killing the environment, and what we can do about it. The story is about a teacher (a gorilla named Ishmael who has telepathic powers) and a student (a writer, who participated in the 60’s revolution, but was cynical until he became Ishmael’s pupil).
