The Book of the DamnedThe Book For Which I M Best Known, Ishmael, Came Into Being Over A Twelve Year Period, Beginning In 1979 It Wasn T Work On A Single Book Rather, It Was Work On Different Versions Of What Eventually Becamea Single Book Ishmael, The Eighth Version And The Only One In Which The Teacher Ishmael Appears When I Started Writing The Book Of The Damnedin 1981, I Was Sure I D Found The Book I Was Born To Write The Versions That Came Before Had Been Like Rainy Days With Moments Of Sunshine THIS Was A Thunderstorm, And The Lines Crossed My Pages Like Flashes Of Lightning When, After A Few Thousand Words I Came To A Clear Climax, I Said, This MUST Be Seen, So I Put Part One Into Print Parts Two And Three Followed, And I Began Searching For The Switch That Would Turn On Part Four But It Just Wasn T There I Clung To It For A Long Time After Issuing The First Three Parts, Desperately Hoping To Find A Way To Produce Additional Parts That Would Bring It To The Conclusion I Knew Was Out There What I D Done Was Terrific And Complete In Its Own Way But At Last I Faced The Fact That The Whole Thing Just Couldn T Be Done In Lightning Strikes Another Ten Years Passed Before I Found The Way, A Completely Different Way In Ishmael, Which Was The Embodiment Of My Message, Providing The Foundation For The Clarifications, Amplifications, And Extensions Still To Come But Publishing The Book Of The Damnedhad Been No Mistake It Deserved To Be Published, And It Still Does Those Lightning Strikes Illuminate An Apocalyptic Landscape Never Seen Before Or After, In Any Of My Later Books Including Ishmael.

    If you ve read Daniel Quinn s books you will not find much new here, but there s an edge to Quinn s beliefs Written by a younger Quinn you can sense his bravado, his smug dismissal of the world as it is Man is not the son of god, he is the son of apes.

    If you read Ishmael than this book might be a disappointment to you A lot of the same ideas are shared between the two mainly the theme of needing to rewrite mankind s story from master of the natural world to me...

    The idea is the same as in his popular book, Ishmael, only without the background story of a teaching Gorilla I m not sure which one I prefer This one seems to go into detail, while Ishmael is, thanks to the story, captivating, outrageous, and ultimately enjoyable However, the ideas both books ...

    The law of lifeThinking outside the box has become a slogan, sometimes meaningless Much harder to do is think outside our cultural s s Daniel Quinn does this beautifully and I think most of us who read him know instinctually he is right Isn t it sad that we live in Paradise and have made a hell o...

    A quick read Straight to the point and brutal with its blunt, and correct, view of reality For people too lazy to read, this can easily be knocked out in a single sitting.
