  • Global Problems and the Culture of Capitalism by Richard Robbins has been suggested by Ishmael Network member Jayme Peck...and Jayme has this to say about the book: "Professor Robbins has created a textbook, (though not much like a textbook) that critically examines the system of capitalism through the lens of anthropology using historical evidence and compelling arguments. While this book is not anti-capitalist, it compells the reader to understand the misgivings and massive faults of the capitalist culture. In my view this book is completely related to Quinns ideas in that Capitalism can be looked at as the latest of manifestations (and the most dangerous) of the taker culture."
    Check out and/or Order Global Problems and the Culture of Capitalism from Amazon.com! You can also order from a local bookstore by using BookSense.

  • Globalization•Technology and Competition by Stephen P. Bradley, editor has been suggested by Ishmael Network member Jim Weiler...and Jim has this to say about the book: "This book concerns The Harvard Business School's vision of the future globalization of the Internet as envisioned in the early '90's (1993 pub. date). I needed something to read, my library card was blocked because of an unfortunate rainstorm ruining a book I had borrowed, and I was broke, so I stole it from the library's donated books shelves (value to library, $2.00). Much to my surprise, I found the book extremely entertaining and enlightening, and I read it from cover-to-cover during the next month or so.

    The book is somewhat dated, it examines the culture of the Internet from the business viewpoint with predictions based on the culture that existed then. (doh... why do you think the business types were cultivated to grow the Internet? Because Lots of Money was/is needed!) The entertainment comes from noticing which predictions have failed, and which are still extant, and noticing the lack of certain names, which are very likely to be future success stories.

    That's part of the book. The other part is their very great attention to detail, filling in with certain revelations about this globalization enterprise that I hadn't noticed or was absent from my repertory of knowledge about the Internet. The various s-curves presented certainly fit the present time, and extend into the future for at least a decade or so, and I highly recommend you read this book, for the enlightenment you will get, not only about what drives the current WWW, but for the certainty of at least a part of our future, despite the manipulations that have and will occur.

    How does this relate to Daniel's creations? Well, where are you reading this? Doh... :)"
    Check out and/or Order Globalization•Technology and Competition from Amazon.com! You can also order from a local bookstore by using BookSense.

  • God Emperor of Dune by Frank Herbert has been suggested by Ishmael Network member Kristian Brower...and Kristian has this to say about the book: "Dune the series is one of the greatest books of the imagination, and speaks a great deal about how things are and what we need to do to make it better, and God Emperor of Dune I think is the most philisophical book of the series and like Ishmael and the the others makes you think deeply on how things are how things should be and how most likely with a little help what life would be withe balance of the past and future. And like Daniel Quinn, Frank Herbert did alot of research before anything was written. Key points though is you do need to read the books before God Emporer before reading God Emporer. And like Quinn, Herbert did alot of research on Ecology, History, Psychology, Religion, and Politics."
    Check out and/or Order God Emperor of Dune from Amazon.com! You can also order from a local bookstore by using BookSense.

  • Godel, Escher, Bach - An Eternal Golden Braid by Douglas Hofstadter has been suggested by Ishmael Network member George Gilman...and George has this to say about the book: "In this Pulitzer Prize winner, Hofstadter examines how we as humans mentally convert everything we percieve into symbols and how all human reason operates as the manipulation of these symbols. In the course of this search, he tracks a common creative thread though mathematics, music, visual arts, quantum physics, biology, sociology, zen buddhism, computer science, and many other human persuits. He powerfully demonstrates the strengths and weakness of this basic cognitive process that leave their mark (for better or for worse) on every human endeavor. As such, it is a great resource for deepening an understanding of "how things came to be this way". By studying the works of such disparate intellects as Kurt Godel, M.C. Escher, J.S. Bach, Werner Hiesenberg, and Lewis Carrol, Hofstadter also seeks to uncover the basic essences of human creativity that span all disciplines. Since the Ishmael books look to this creativity to provide the practical solutions to our shared problems, the insights Hofstadter will provide a good basis for those trying to understand how those solutions might be found."
    Check out and/or Order Godel, Escher, Bach - An Eternal Golden Braid from Amazon.com! You can also order from a local bookstore by using BookSense.

  • Going Local -- Creating Self-Reliant Communities in a Global Age by Michael Shuman has been suggested by Ishmael Network member Ruth Amundsen...and Ruth has this to say about the book: "A great read with ideas of how global corporations hurt the ecology, the community, the environment, and the citizens, and how communities can be strengthened."

  • Going Native by J(ay) J(asper) Bone has been suggested by Ishmael Network member Gus Steeves...and Gus has this to say about the book: "An impressive but sometimes annoying journal of one Taker's transformation into a Leaver, thanks to his contact with the people of Africa. Bone, now a fieldworker for several major universities, went there at age 18 with a HUGE chip on his shoulder -- he relates bossing the locals around while moaning how much they're "using" him. 18 months later, he departs, leaving them all of his stuff. Initially, he's shocked that the area's two tribes (the Walese agriculturalists and the Mbuti hunters) can live side by side and trade yet "the one doesn't want to live like the other," and neither seeks to dominate the other. Eventually, he sees why, and also sees how third parties (especially the Eurocentric, "frozen" missionaries and the pompous Zairian government) are trying to wipe out both cultures in their drive to "modernize" and/or "save souls.""
    Check out and/or Order Going Native from Amazon.com! You can also order from a local bookstore by using BookSense.

  • Gone to Croatan an Anthology by edited by ron / james sakolsky / koehnline has been suggested by Ishmael Network member john stifler...and john has this to say about the book: "the title refers to the "vannished colony" at roanoke, va, who, as it is told, went splitsville with the natives (specifically the croatoans) while sir walter raleigh was back in europe. the book documents the history of groups who said "screw it" and went native, including the maroons and the ishmaelites (also known as the tribe of ishmael,) a quasi-nomadic community consisting of escaped slaves, free blacks, native americans, and escaped indentured white servants. sort of a history for "our" community. a must read!"

  • Good Nights: The Happy Parent's Guide to the Family Bed by Jay Gordon has been suggested by Ishmael Network member Stacy Doney...and Stacy has this to say about the book: "Relates well to content in "My Ishmael". Parenting does not stop just because you go to sleep at night. Babies for millions of years slept next to their caregivers at night--else how did they survive? Your baby needs to be with you, not in some crib that's making somebody rich and your baby miserable."

  • Hackers And Painters: Big Ideas From The Computer Age by Paul Graham has been suggested by Ishmael Network member Matthew Paulus...and Matthew has this to say about the book: "This is another book that I only recommend part of. Chapter 3: What You Can't Say...Thinking Heretical Thoughts And What To Do With Them. Graham shows us why it is essential for us to think what we're told not to. But also points out the dangers of going against moral fashion trends. Going against clothing fashions will merely get you laughed at. Going against moral fashions can get you threatened, beaten or killed. But he also gives us hope, by pointing out that many heretics are redeemed as geniuses when they are proved correct. Chapter 3 is an inspiring reading. Unless you are a programmer, a big chunk of this book will be boring. Paul Graham was one of the founders of ViaWeb, a revolutionary online business, so if you are interested in a new way of earning a living, you might also take away many ideas from the chapters describing how ViaWeb was founded, organized, and run until it was bought by Yahoo! and turned into YahooStores! That's the sad part, another great idea and unique approach to the problem of earning a living sold out to a big corporation. But the lessons are still there to be learned."
    Check out and/or Order Hackers And Painters: Big Ideas From The Computer Age from Amazon.com! You can also order from a local bookstore by using BookSense.

  • Hannibal by Thomas Harris has been suggested by Ishmael Network member Jim Weiler...and Jim has this to say about the book: "I've been trying to figure out what made Hannibal the book (over 1 million copies in print) and the movie box-office hit that it is... and why I liked it as much as I did. While reading My Ishmael, I finally figured it out. It's not the horror of cannibalism that's made it such a hit, it's Hannibal Lector's stepping outside the keeping of food under lock and key, and dining on "free-ranging" human flesh, that fascinates people so much; the violation of a taboo absolutely central to our culture. The point is only heightened by Hannibal's highly intelligent, charismatic, and cultured demeanor in both the book and as portrayed in the movie by Anthony Hopkins (one of the finest actors I've ever watched). Try to imagine either the book or the movie even being published in the 1950s, say? Let alone being a major book and movie hit?"
    Check out and/or Order Hannibal from Amazon.com! You can also order from a local bookstore by using BookSense.

  • Healing the Soul of America by Marianne Williamson has been suggested by Ishmael Network member Chris McCarthy...and Chris has this to say about the book: "What fascinated me about this book was the suggestion to make amends to other cultures as a beginning of the healing process. As a member of a twelve step program, I can see where the author has borrowed concepts from this institution."
    Check out and/or Order Healing the Soul of America from Amazon.com! You can also order from a local bookstore by using BookSense.

  • Hello, My Name Is Chellis And I Am In Recovery From Western Civilization by Chellis Glendinning has been suggested by Ishmael Network member Teri Kelly...and Teri has this to say about the book: "Chellis helps us to understand how our disconnectedness to the natural world is affecting our mental state as a culture. She shows us that to become balanced as a culture, we have to being to connect with nature. It is an important book that focuses on the need to heal ourselves in order to heal the world. Classic ecopsychology."

  • Hiroshima by John Hershey has been suggested by Ishmael Network member Wythe Marschall...and Wythe has this to say about the book: "War, an outgrowth of Taker dominance and unknown to Leavers, is hell. Hiroshima gives us an unabashed, close up look at the evils of Taker society. Maybe people who've Hiroshima will be more inclined to check out Quinn's books and ideas. For our sakes, I hope so."
    Check out and/or Order Hiroshima from Amazon.com! You can also order from a local bookstore by using BookSense.

  • Hitchhikers Guide To The Galaxy by Douglas Adams has been suggested by Ishmael Network member Borjan Komarica...and Borjan has this to say about the book: "Well, let's just say it does not contradict one tiny bit to anything DQ said. Of course it's all SF satire, but the view on our Taker culture, as well as his view of everything else he described in the book is quite unique. Everything could be so easily translated into "less serious" methafors for Daniel's Vision. Until I've read Daniel's books, this was my favourite book of all time and I almost know it by heart, so e-mail me if you want examples and similarities between DA's and DQ's visions (if you can't figure it out by yourself)..."

  • How the Mind Works by Steven Pinker has been suggested by Ishmael Network member Dale Barnard...and Dale has this to say about the book: "This is the most inspiring book I've read since Daniel Quinn's stuff. Great writing style with plenty of humor that looks very hard at exactly what humans are built for. If we know what we have evolved to do well, then perhaps we'll do more of it! Truly an amazing book!!! Oh, and the author is very humble about what we really know about the how the brain works, which is nice. He doesn't pretend that we know more than we really do."

  • How To Read A book by Mortimer J Adler has been suggested by Ishmael Network member Benjamin Moss...and Benjamin has this to say about the book: "Sorry to say my friends, but this does not directly relate to any of the ideas of our esteemed teacher, Daniel Quinn. What it does do, however, is provide an excellent method of reading that can help us all get more out of every book we read. After having read "How to Read A Book", I wanted to go back and read all the books I read prior to see what I missed. It really is a big help, almost like learning a whole new aspect of language. I hope this helps."

Consciousness needs to be used in conjunction with awareness & patterning, and not as an instrument of controlling and judging the world, which is an impossible task."

  • Human Adaptability: An Introduction to Ecological Anthropology, Second Edition. by Emilio Moran has been suggested by Ishmael Network member Xavier Sonnerat...and Xavier has this to say about the book: "I expected more adaptive cultural strategies from primitive people than modern ecological data.

  • Human Scale by Kirkpatrick Sale has been suggested by Ishmael Network member Ramey Wood...and Ramey has this to say about the book: "With anecdotes, facts, stories and statistics, this 1980 book surveys our society highlighting how we, humans, have lost our scale. From the construction of our living spaces to our educational systems, from the function of our eyes to transportation, health, government and community, Sale offers us an accessible read for many points to consider. Does it relate directly with Quinn's books? Not exactly...but what does? If taken literally, as gospel, without any consideration, thought, personal application or exploration, any book falls short. This text is worth the read. Again, and again, and again..."

I find both Kaku and Quinn have valid points, and feel one approach cannot be left out by the other."
