Have read a number of books from this author and this book, The Noah Syndrome, was written far back in a time (> 25 years ago). This in itself was at a time when the internet was in infancy, as it is known today, and research then required a great many physical books be read as opposed to googling some article or opinion. Some of the ideas the author discusses then were cognisant of ideas of many other thinkers and of those from prior historical times; asking tough questions, looking for answers in places many don't think to look. The other aspect is that looking for answers require an intense wide field of study of sciences and histories; not easy. As such, this writing expanded upon many of those matters, linking them, sussing out what fits and remarkably, many of them remain today just as valid and hold true within the author's later writings.
