Reviewer: Jim Britell, (Millennium Whole Earth Catalog)

"My working hypothesis is that this book is actually a theological work....For some reason it has been superficially structured as a novel. It is a comprehensive and devastating analysis of 'civilized' man framed as a Socratic dialog between a man and a gorilla."

"Wonderfully earnest and engaging. Think of Robert Pirsig in 'Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance' of B.F. Skinner in 'Walden Two.'"

"As suspenseful, inventive and socially urgent as any fiction or nonfiction book you are likely to read this or any other year."

Reviewer: Jim Britell

"From now on I will divide the books I have read into two categories--the ones I read before 'Ishmael' and those I read after."
