This book deeply explained the roots of human nature relating to war and social groups and their beleifs. The author cited scientific facts to back up ideas. He relates the human race very close to primates as well as comparing societies of today, to those of the past centuries.

I've read thousands of books and this, by far, is the most intelligent and enlightening book I've ever discovered. If the world seems confusing, profane and sometimes idiotic to you, maybe this book will put things in an understandable context. Carrol Quigley's 'Tragedy & Hope' is it's only peer. Also, it might be good to have first read the works of Erich Fromm and Richard Dawkins, especially considering author Bloom cites their work. Thank you Howard Bloom! -James Muller

Very intellectual and thorough approach into nature and history... I wish it could be mandatory in all high-schools, but would it be a little too intellectual for the american education system?

Every chapter is filled with so many thoughts and ideas. What a different perspective on living and thinking. Thank-you Howard!!! The title, though shocking to some, should not be a deterrent

I read this prior to 9/11. It was eerie, picking it up after. To understand what is happening in the world today, this is the book to read. It really is brilliant and original.

This is a must have book if you're curious about human behavior/motivations and where they came from. This will not let you down, but be warned this isn't a book for the casual reader. This takes moderately deep thought.

Excellent, thought provoking book, elucidating the theory that there are two forces in nature -- one constructive, the other destructive, the latter the stuff of this book. The author makes the point that creation of new things in nature, the cosmos, new countries, new ideas, and so forth, would not be feasible without the breakdown of that which comes before it. A compelling read -- one which I highly recommend!

In this title, Bloom does what few are willing to do: take the great variety and depth of information about human nature so far aquired by civilization, and use it to form a solid thesis on why history has unfolded in the certain way that it has. Many facts that have been otherwise glazed over by modern culture are drawn together to form a convincing, and yes, frightening picture of where humanity has been and where it is going. Reading this book, becoming aware of the arguments and evidence it presents, is like waking up from a dream and finally grasping what the world is like; if not completely correct, then without a doubt on the right track. It is enjoyable, inspirational and informational. Please read this book, for your sake and mine.

The Lucifer Principle introduced the most believable concept of human nature I have ever heard. Well cited examples illustrated the theory of the superorganism and spawned ideas of my own. This is truly a book to study and contemplate over and over again.

An astounding philosophical precedent to not only our reality, but reality in its purest of forms. Reinforced by substational studies of old and new, a unique conclusion is formed, given a life and mind of its own. The possibilities branching from this singular study are endless, moreover will prove fascinating in years - even decades - to come.

The Lucifer Principle is the most realistic portrayal and explanation of natural and human history that I've ever come across. I wish it could be circulated as widely as the Bible and translated into as many languages, because it gives the reader an insight into the world as it is that surpasses anything I've seen anywhere else until now. And on top of that it is a great read.

The scientific reasoning that Bloom uses to describe the events through the course of history is amazing. On a side note, this book was ment to make a person think and give new ideas into the forces of history

Bloom takes Scientific Theory and transforms it into a mesmerizing adventure that any non-scientist can not only understand, but also enjoy tremendously; from page one, this book grips the reader, and doesn't let go. The author's style is so comfortable, you feel as though he were conversing with you in person. There are few books which both impart a wealth of interesting information AND which keep a reader turning the pages. This book does that, effortlessly.
