  • Have you ever thought that there might be something wrong with human beings, even that we might be slightly insane Why is it that human history has been filled with endless wars, together with brutal oppression and inequality, and that so many of us are filled with a restless discontent and an insatiable desire for status, success and material goods In this ground breakiHave you ever thought that there might be something wrong with human beings, even that we might be slightly insane Why is it that human history has been filled with endless wars, together with brutal oppression and inequality, and that so many of us are filled with a restless discontent and an insatiable desire for status, success and material goods In this ground breaking and inspiring book, Steve Taylor shows that we do suffer from a psychological disorder, which he refers to as ego madness, or egomania This disorder is so close to us that we don t realize it s there, but it s the root cause of all our dysfunctional behaviour, both as individuals and as a species This book explains the characteristics of ego madness, where it stems from and how it leads to the madness of materialism, status seeking, warfare, inequality and other symptoms of our insanity But equally importantly, Back to Sanity shows how we can heal this mental disorder, and how to allow the fleeting moments of harmony that we all experience from time to time to become our permanent state of being.

    Damn you London Sunday Times Style section you recommended this book, WHY!!!! You know when you have a paper to write and you only have a very flimsy thesis to base it on, but you go ahead anyway, well this book is like that, but IT'S A BOOK! The author (who apparently is charged with the responsibility of educating young minds at a university somewhere), has a basic premise that basically pretty much every negative thing in the world is caused by 'humania', or basically our inability to get be [...]

    A fairly simplistic book that looks at what the author terms 'humania' - a sort of collective psychosis that humanity suffers from - and its social and personal effects. The hypothesis, to more scathing readers, may seem a little thin on the ground, so to speak. But if read with a gentle openness of mind there may be some gems of wisdom that may have passed you by. It made me realise that I have spent many years of my life listening rather passively to music and wondering where that intensity I [...]

    I wasn't very fond of how chatty the book was, many things were being rephrased over and over just in a different way. The book is mostly a sum-up of what all we do when we try to fill some "void".But what I appreciate is that in some of those examples (stories etc.) it points out a couple of "bad" habits of everyone and what possibly led them to such a lifestyle. In my eyes the main thought of the book was that you can live better especially by focusing on the presence (instead of the past or t [...]

    A good book for understanding the madness of what I call our 'monkey mind', you know- that constant chatter going on inside our headSimply written and easy to comprehend and a good guide to get clear of the ego demands that causes the chatter. What meditation can do for you and the wellness that nature and exercise can give you.Eckhart Tolle is the main man for this subject but I like this guy's approach to it, it is simple and attainable.

    Best interessant en heel herkenbaar (vb. onophoudelijke 'mind-chatter' die ons gemoed beïnvloedt) maar te enthousiast en te verreikend uitgesponnen. Zo wijt hij werkelijk alle problemen waar de mensheid ooit mee te maken had aan onze overactieve, egocentrische hersenen. De vooropgestelde remedie voor 'humania' (zo doopt hij de imaginaire ziekte waar mensheid aan schijnt te lijden) is dan weer erg beperkt en/of voordehandliggend (mindfulness, meditatie, rustig blijven,)

    Perfect descriptions of the madness with which I live my life This book is a great eye opener that says how crucial it is live on the present moment and inside ourselves, especially in today's digital and connected world

    Enjoyable read. Picked this up because I loved his previous book The Fall, which is fascinating and I suggest anyone interested in Back to Sanity check out first.
