Item description for The Fall: The Insanity of the Ego in Human History and the Dawning of A New Era by Steve Taylor...

It is not "natural" for human beings to kill each other, for men to oppress women, for individuals to accumulate massive wealth and power, or to abuse nature. The roots of our current malaise lie in an "ego explosion" which occurred several thousand years ago. "Primitive," pre-civilization men and women were largely free of our social ills and had a more unified and harmonious state of being than us. This intensively-researched, highly praised book explains the origins of our problems and suggests what we can do to return to a state of harmony. It overturns the wisdom of the last few centuries and changes the way we think about the human race's past and future.

Reviews - What do customers think about The Fall: The Insanity of the Ego in Human History and the Dawning of A New Era?

Great!  Jun 30, 2008
A very fascinating look at the human condition and shows our potential as human beings. I was very inspired after reading this book and changed the way I see fellow man.
awe-inspiring  Jun 28, 2008
I found this book through Eckhart Tolle and it is one of the best books I have ever read, a spiritual vision of history which explains how human beings have made such a terrible mess of the world through the workings of the ego. Its scope is awe-inspiring - from the earliest times of the human race to the future, through every culture and country. But it is by no means a negative or cynical book - on the contrary, the author shows that human life is meant to be (and actually was for much of our history) glorious and meaningful. He suggests that there is an evolutionary movement pushing us back to a state of harmony, and that we can accelerate this process through our own spiritual practice. An amazing book!
provocative and inspiring  Jun 13, 2008
a totally radical view of human nature and our potential for overcoming the ills of "civilization."
Absolutely Fascinating!  Dec 28, 2007
This book had me riveted. If we'd read books like this in high school history class, I would have been a lot more interested. The author does a great job of combining history, anthropology, gender studies, and spirituality (among other things) into a fascinating account of the past 6,000 years of human history.

I know that, after reading this book, I'll never look at the world the same way again. The premise behind the work makes so much sense, and helps to explain why things (good and bad) are the way they are.

Typos and grammar issues bother me, and there were some really horrendous ones in this book. However, I am willing to overlook them in this case and give this book five stars because I believe it is so important to our understanding of ourselves.

This is one of the best books I read in 2007. I highly recommend it.
Intriguing Ideas  Sep 3, 2007
The Fall contains many intriguing ideas about why humnanity is in the situation in which we find ourselves. Taylor reminds us, thankfully, that all the misery encountered by so many people in the course of their lives is just plan wrong. It does not have to be.

I would suspect that many of his ideas would be challenged by other scholars and a discussion of his theories would be most interesting.

The Fall is quite repetitive in places. I would have liked to have read how Taylor thinks we can have a more compassionate peaceful society on a global scale with more than 6 billion people alive today.
