User reviews about the book

  • Clear as Mud

    By Rodonisle
    The mud in the Grunt's clothes stays in spite of years of soap. Likewise the stains on his soul left by war. This author not only acknowledges the fact, but seeks out why, and makes it clear. Too bad the world that needs to hear his words, is deafened by the loss of tribe.
  • Just a prelude

    I’ve heard The author speak at length, both about this book and on other topics and I really like him. I did enjoy this book, but it’s not nearly long enough. I finished what I thought was the first section, the setup if you will, but to my dismay I found I had turned the last page. In that regard, I was fairly disappointed. What was contained in those scant chapters though was well written and interesting. I like his writing well enough and look forward to more from the other, but I need more. I needed this book to go somewhere and it simply didn’t. I’m fascinated by the topic covered and want to find more books dealing with this subject.

    Great book and very quick to read. Like others have said, the author wrote this much like an article you would find in a magazine (actually, the author mentions that parts of this book have been published in magazines). The author did a great job explaining how the sense of community (tribe) directly correlates to the success of a society. I don't believe the author was as politically charged as others claim in other reviews. I highly recommend this book.

    Great insights into ancient wisdom in modern clothing. Needs to be read by all who are responsible for the well being of others - politicians, community leaders, business people, parents. The future quality of our human race in a globalized, capitalistic world depends upon it.
  • A long article.

    It was a VERY easy read. Seemed much like a long magazine article which the author stated he sourced from. About halfway thru, Junger's left leaning ideology simmers through. It isn't too heavy and was more a point of surprise than an intrusion. When he lays the total cost of things on a popular left view whipping boy instead of truly going all the way to the core & true source of the problem, the seminal event that set up the whole stage for the resultant failure, it left me to wonder if it were a lack of research work, a blind eye turned to the truth, or simply toeing the opinion line he prefers.
