    I brought this along with me when spending part of the XMas break in the Riverdale area of the Bronx at the home of Mortimer Ostow as a guest of his daughter Abbie, my first girlfriend in anything approaching a usual sense of the word I had hoped her dad, a prominent psychoanalyst, would be impressed by my reading matter, Dubos being a microbiologist, but if he was it didn t show.

    Just ordered a new copy I read this book probably around 1975 and only today I was able to recall the name thanks to www.abebooks.comThis book left a permanent impression and I think is very relevant in 2010 when humanity needs to find new ways to adapt

    I recall reading this book in the summer fall of 1973 It was loaned to me by the attorney who lived across the hall I remember thinking what a remarkable, insightful book it was but looking back over the space of 34 years, I think it has a significant impact on the way I thought think about things Despite the fact that this book was written nearly 40 years ago and has been followed and built on by other books e.g Guns, Germs and Steel , I believe it is still highly relevant.

    We are still struggling with the same issues moving away from our natural roots, living in congested cities, uncontrolled pollution No wonder people are losing it in the 21st Century.

    read God Within it s not a religion book as I presumed, mainly on ecology or this one, but not both same style, same ideas, same argument, same examples, waste of time.

    Interesting ideas, it s neat how a book written in the 50s describes the social and environmental problems that we still struggle with today.
