Editorial Reviews

Gary Dale Cearly
Alex S. Key has done his homework...A very powerful message delivered in a very straightforward way, citing examples from history, philosophy, popular culture, and direct sources from the Bible, Quran...I found the book fascinating...an eye-opening book, even for guys like me who have read several similar books before. Has the potential to serve as a base for Key to become one of our rising stars in social commentary.

Using true-life accounts to state his case, the text is fascinating...Read The Third Basic Instinct with your fists closed or with hands clapping in applause. This book definitely offers a compelling look at personal belief systems and their potential to impact the entire human race.
