Industry Reviews

'The reason why most of us wouldn't write such a book, along with all the other questions and problems faced by humanity are answered in Free: The End of The Human Condition...In tracing all our environmental, social and political problems back to basic human psychology, Griffith provides a new way of looking at the world...His ideas are in a class of their own.' Arena, Macquarie University, Australia 'The content is a rare combination of philosophy, comparative religion, biology and very genuine reflection on the state of mankind and womankind...It examines, too, the conflict between conscience and intellect - the biological reasons and effects, and the guilt this brought on us as we developed the concepts of "good" and "evil"...Importantly, the author examines why the "war" between the sexes developed during humanity's "adolescence" and how this understanding of the necessary "growing up" can free us.' Dr John Champness, Australian psychologist and educator 'Griffith's grasp of biology and physics places him in the tradition of Teilhard de Chardin and Ilya Prigogine. But he goes beyond this...proclaiming that all our past divisive behaviour was a necessary phase of "human adolescence".' The Canadian Journal Edges, Vol 1, No.3 'Was Jeremy Griffith struck by lightning on the road to Damascus...Such was my cynicism reading the summary...Then whack! Wham! Reading on. I was increasingly impressed and then converted by his erudite explanation for society's competitive and self-destructive behaviour.' Executive Woman's Report, Vol 1 No. 16
