Praise

“It is absolutely one of the most thrilling (I mean that—it gives me goose bumps) books I have ever read.”
—Robin Fox, Rutgers University

“Impressive and stimulating. A tremendously enjoyable work.”
—James Fallows, national correspondent for the Atlantic

“The Genius of the Beast is a tour de force.”
—Washington Times

“In this recapitulation of the universe’s evolutionary thrust—and humanity’s part of it—Howard Bloom proves to be a provocative, even an inspiring, thinker.”
—ForeWord Reviews

“Engrossing, uplifting, and educational . . . fascinating.”
—Monsters and Critics

“I really could not put it down. Ultimately, I found the book a tremendously optimistic, motivating, exciting read that I look forward to tackling again.”
—NewsReal

“Capitalism does indeed work, scholar Bloom boldly affirms in this at-once brash and well-considered treatise, in which, in his own words, he applies a new lens to viewing the entire course of Western civilization. . . . The problem . . . [lies] in the way capitalism has come to be viewed. This long, provocative, needs-to-be-read book seeks to rectify that situation. What he explains here, in detailed arguments, is that ‘capitalism and the Western system hide astonishing abilities.’ Spend time with this eye-opener.”
—Booklist

“Riveting, brilliant, remarkable, distressing, optimistic, and beautifully written. A brilliant . . . history of the world.”
—Michael Zilkha, CEO of Zilkha Biomass Energy

“Get this book and read it. Bloom’s assessments are thoughtful and inspiring. Thank you, Howard Bloom; you have bridged generations and thoughts and tied together facts that otherwise would have gone unnoticed.”
—Zenpundit
