  • Uncommon Ground: Rethinking the Human Place in Nature by William Cronon has been suggested by Ishmael Network member Matt Clarke...and Matt has this to say about the book: "I recently started reading an exceprt, entitled "The Trouble With Wilderness," from this book. Although I haven't finished reading the article, I just joined the Ishmael Community and thought I'd share what I've read so far. Cronon is advocating a revision of how we define the term wilderness. Cronon argues that our current definition of "wilderness" is flawed in the sense that it leaves no place for humans; the only relationship humans of Taker culture can have with nature is one of distant reverie. Cronon suggests we redefine "wilderness" by re-establishing a relationship with it."

  • Uncommon Wisdom by Fritjof Capra has been suggested by Ishmael Network member Bruce Hogge...and Bruce has this to say about the book: "Capra's academic experience as a theoretical physicist coupled with his soulful journey into eastern philosophy envisions linkages that bind us all."

  • Understanding Stupidity: An Analysis of the Unnatural Selection of Ideas, Beliefs and Behavior in Institutions and Organizations by James Welles has been suggested by Ishmael Network member Bob Coleman...and Bob has this to say about the book: "This is a brilliant highly accessible book in spite of the sometimes unavoidable terminology. Briefly defined on page 7, stupidity is "a schematically generated, self-deceptive breakdown of the feedback mechanism between behavior and the environment. This breakdown necessarily follows from stupidity's success in creating an arbitrary world ... Understanding is sacrificed for the sake of social cohesion and cultural stability." See the author's related listed book entitled The Story of Stupidity."

  • Un-Jobbing: The Adult Liberation Handbook by Michael Fogler has been suggested by Ishmael Network member Warren Fleischer...and Warren has this to say about the book: "This book is short on paper (118pgs), but long on wisdom. Aguide to maximizing your time spent doing things that are meaningful to you, with an emphasis on voluntary simplicity. Valuable appendix."

It's a eye opener and life-changing book like Ishmael. Once you've regain the control of your time you can invest part of it on some grand cause if you think that's right for you... :D"
