The World According To Good Gods, by Greg Oliver, answers many questions in connection with the spiritual, economical, social, and psychological aspects of life. The author's aim of writing this book is to provide readers a road map to success. This narrative is about the philosophy of nature, happiness, evolution, love, and education. In an engaging manner, it discusses personal mythology and the meaning of life.
From the perspective of the philosophy of scientific naturalism, the book highlights the various ways one can be happy and lead a fulfilling life. It shows means to fix broken lives and create lasting happiness. Also, it reveals how to build a good life through the development of our intelligence and scientific knowledge. It encourages people to always act in agreement and harmony with the laws of nature. Consequently, environmental conditions will be influenced to provide the settings within which certain natural laws will be compelled to function in the desired ways. In a fascinating style, the author unveils how to have a healthy, erotic, and loving relationship with members of the opposite sex.
Presented in six parts, this guidebook reveals the foundation for real success. Though it's a serious read, it's well written and comprehensible. Greg relates his message in a coherent manner, and the text is structured properly. Actually, I don't agree with some of the points the author made, but there are a few I concur with, particularly the ones concerning the universal education system and sounds. "In contrast to harmful sounds, good sounds have uniquely beneficial effects on the state of our being. Moreover, it has been known from time immemorial that good music relieves nervous tension, creates harmony, brightens our mood, and helps to enhance our emotional life." I got that from this book.
In addition, the narrative discusses philosophical idealism in the context of scientific methods, metaphysics of culture, the spiritual evolution of the human race, and the laws of nature, notably as it relates to solid positive laws. It explores dogmatic, religious views. Thus, some religious people may not want to read it. However, it'll be a worthwhile read for any freethinker seeking more useful knowledge since it gives a fresh perspective of existence and encourages human development.
In conclusion, this publication is informative and enlightening. It comprises some basic truths and helpful information. Besides, it's well edited because I didn't see any grammatical or typographical errors. Therefore, I rate it 4 out of 4 stars. I don't have any reason to rate it lower, and I recommend it to philosophy students and persons seeking philosophical ways to live a better life.
