This is a totally new way of looking at the evolution of the human brain. It is so totally fresh, unexpected and hitherto un-thought-of that it will probably take a long time before evolutionary anthropologists and psychologists begin to take it on board; but it will make an impact, of that there is no doubt. It will be, it must be, taken very seriously in any discussion of human origins.

"Review by Ruth Boulton" I would have rated this book ****** if I could work out how to do it! Function. Diet. Chemistry. Psychology. Sociology. Anthropology. Creativity. Ecology. EXTRAORDINARY. This book manages to explain the link between all of these and more and the effects our tragic inherited loss of function has and is increasingly having on us. It takes us to the edge of our potentiality and exposes the inherent key for profound and sustainable change from the inside out. It is fascinating and engaging reading, written in digestible sections with a balance of scientific information, explanation, personal experience and the odd lacing of dry humour to highlight the message. It gave me a real sense and explanation of hunches I've had in my work and life, with lots of new ground as 'food for thought'. With deep thanks, Ruth Boulton Music Therapist

"Stunning - And Simple" What an incredible book. Literally, mind-blowing. The central idea explains everything about people that ever puzzled me or niggled the back of my mind. If you have any unease about 'progress' - any concern for the ecological future of the world - if you care about the next generation - if you wonder what it means to have a moment of intuition, or a 'spiritual experience', or 'know' that someone is looking at you - if you are wondering where humanity went wrong - read this book. If this idea is right, the mess that we are in is not our fault, but we still desperately need to fix it. In our lifetimes we will probably never know for sure if the theory contained here is right or wrong. But just realizing that this MIGHT be true, changes everything for me. I can see what I was doing right, what was wrong, what is important and what needs to be dropped. The description may make this book sound academic and perhaps difficult - but it is NOT. The idea is... More > very well explained in simple terms, all the supporting arguments are clear and the scientific theory is there if you want it. Any reasonably intelligent person could follow it easily. Most of us are floundering through our lives, trying to act for the best without ever knowing exactly what the best is. We are always half-conscious of something lacking but we either have no idea what it is or we chase after things that, when we get them, turn out not to fill the gap after all. Other people seem to be complete - but to ourselves, we don't - and we never quite feel we fit in. Wnat to know why? Expand your universe - read Wright & Gynn's explanation. I only wish this was more widely distributed. It should be in Amazon etc. Listen to interview with Tony Wright about the book on New Zealand radio.

"Right to the Light" Left in the dark is not a book. It is an adventure into the depths of the mind, body and soul from a different yet somehow intrinsically familiar perspective showing us how things became what they are today. Different because the book takes the reader on an exciting journey that is off track when it comes to the usual landscape of today's scientific theories, and is right on track when it comes to the science of tomorrow. Familiar because for me personally it weaves togehter almost everything that I've been interested in: evolutionary biology, spirituality, the brain chemistry, the feeling of Flow, raw and living food and the strong feeling I've always had that this is not how life was meant to be lived (ie the modern civilization). Reading this book was a long "aha!" and the feeling of putting all the strange pieces of the puzzle together into a beutiful Vision of Man and Nature. I talk about this book with most of my friends and recommend... More > it to everyone. I hope for many coming editions updated of this Master-Piece (of the large puzzle of Existence) Keep it up!

"Left In the Dark" When this book finally arrived in the mail, I tore it out of the package, sat on my bed and started reading, and literally could not stop until I was through (with the exception to turn on a light as the sun set). Then, I read it several times over--the book is a masterpiece, gripping, painting an undressed image of the human psyche, revealing inner scripts for genius and madness that offer explanation as to why, man, in all his glory, feels so isolated and catapults himself toward a mounting global-social-environmental catastrophe. If you have ever wondered about the seeming incompatible dualities of human nature--how as artists, families, and lovers, we could be fooled by the doublespeak of advertising, politicians, or turn a blind eye to suffering for personal convenience--the theory put forth in Left In the Dark not only illuminates a concrete, evolutionary reason as to why humans behave so anomalously so, but offers hope to heal this schism, too! ... More > The ideas in this book pervade every science, every aspect of human life. Both the problem and the answer lie in every single one of us, and the book does a splendid job of objectively addressing the problem, and offers a host of solutions to work toward healing our fractured perceptions of reality. The book also includes a wonderful list of extended references for continued reading, which I found extremely rewarding. I highly recommend this book to everyone! The science was explained in relevant and digestible terms, and the information was presented in a way that blew my mind, keeping me eager for the next page until there were no more pages to turn.< Less
