A inspirational look at the struggles of life and how to ready yourself for the next hurdle. Archie had great courage to look back through his life and reflect on the thoughts actions and reasons for occurrence. He treats the positive and negative events in a similar manner and does not shy from the raw detail. Nor is he shy in mentioning and honouring those who helped him along his journey. The personal naration adds a much deeper element to the expression of the prose.

Science writing can be difficult and at times this prose can be technical. Most of the time the story is clear and some of the implications are thought out. Dr Sinclair has a very clear relaxed way to present his life's work. Dr Sinclair also tales the time to recognise and acknowledge other works. The story really makes you think about your life and what matters. The topics are diverse and the range of opportunities are large. This is a great science read.

Helen Armstrong has a depth of understanding across all religions that is perhaps unsurpassed. Her knowledge in the role of ritual and scripture in preparing and activating the human mind across all versions of religion is enlightening. During the narration we are essentially taken on a journey through the history of conscious thought and it's associated meaning. Her outline is that while scripture is at the core of any religion. it's intent is to encourage equality and the desire to look after a fellow person who is considered worse off than yourself. Her premise suggests this is driven by the inequity of the evolving agrarian economy, with the minority haves, making money from the majority have nots.

A summary of some very hard long term research into understanding decision bias. Then using these understandings to critically review a question on the future. Break it down and provide a rational prediction. A good read.

Mr Ford uses the phase "..the science indicates... ", when in reality the real science is ready to start. He has a very interesting and plausible hypothesis, that is compatible with what is observed from the fossil record and with a few scientists thoughts from the past. He now needs to develop projects to test the viability of the hypothesis. This is no mean feat given the foresenic work required to explore the fossil record. However, testing the hypothesis is the Science!

a gem on the last frontier of polar exploration.
