I honestly and completely agree with you Nina Butler. Typographical errors in a book can make readers find a really hard time reading it and which brings about difficulty in understanding and obstruction of flow of the book, unless it is professionally edited. I would recommend a 2 star to the book. Nice review.

Hi Shelle,

That is a good and well-thought review. It's really admirable that you have noted the appropriate audience for that book. It is often we reviewers are too focused to look at it solely from our own perspective.

The book itself seems like a read I'd enjoy, though, despite the fact I'm studying neither sociology nor psychology. Themes of "transcendence, morality, duality and autonomy" are always captivating and worth pondering. From the title it seems, however, that the book is written more as 'manual' than a research-based narrative. Is that the case?

The book sounds as one out of the ordinary. The kind of book that helps you dig deeper within yourself. Will be grabbing a copy soon for myself

I never thought human psychology would interest me. I read page after page and felt like Fred Emil should continue bulging the book size. I shed tears learning the loss of his family members.

I think its one of a kind but it sounds like a heavy read. I prefer something light.

I like having a go at books with such intense subject matter. A good book can sometimes turn your whole perspective upside down. I look forward to finding out what this book has to offer.

I salute the author for the great amount of research he has put into this book but a little disappointed by the professional errors at the editing. It's good that you noted the well written subject matter and the interesting examples. It's also worth noting how the author lost family members in the holocaust, his honesty and vulnerability makes the examples real and not easily forgotten. It's important for us to join the author in questioning the moral progress of the human race and wonder together if any has truly been made. Although the book was tough to read, it's good you liked it. Thanks for the good and honest review.

Thanks for your review. This one sounds like a difficult read but it is necessary to tell this difficult stories if we are ever to learn and grow as a human race. I hope it gets some editing to live up to the quality of the rest of the book.

One of the worst problems that we have in the world is the religion. Many washed brains have killed millions of inocent people in the history, and all of this in the name of God. I'm not trying to start a polemic war here, it's just what I thought when I read your review.

This book is for me! I am huge on the psycho-social factors which shape individuals to act and behave in certain ways. This book's themes of transcendency, morality, duality and autonomy may give insights into human's insatiable appetite for evil.

This is the first book which has piqued my interest mainly because of the bridging between the Holocaust and the psychology of people going through it. I've always wondered what will be the larger picture, general impact on human behaviour for the generations to come.

Immediacy sounds like an intense academic book. As a historian, I have read, studied, and researched humanity's great achievements and terrible atrocities. I have always wondered how humans collectively do horrible things like genocides. Seems like this book tries to answer that question. Too bad it seems it was not professionally edited.
