The Virtual Bookcase Reviews of 'Look for Our Mother and Our Father':

Reviewer Koos van den Hout wrote:
A book which tries to make the reader rethink lots of things by questioning everything. But the author misses any source of the questions, using only sources like "I think", "I read somewhere" and "I heard about this book". Even when this book succeeds in making the reader think about things the reader took for granted, the book annoys that reader at the same time due to the lack of structure. I also found it a negative experience that the book only asks questions in a negative light, but offers no answers.

Book description:

Imagine you have spent your life in the middle of a dust storm, and the air finally clears. Suddenly you see that every step you thought was a step forward was actually a step backward, and you are not where you thought you were. Imagine you can clearly see things now that you had not even realized were distorted, because you were accustomed to the way everything looked in the middle of that cloud of dust... Here is a sad tale of a culture that thought it was the most advanced, enlightened culture ever - but wasn't. The author takes a concrete look at our lifestyle, our values, our spirituality, and our beliefs and shows us that we are not where we think we are. Wouldn't you like to be able to see your life clearly, without clouds of dust blocking your view? This book provides a new perspective that will allow people to re-evaluate their lives and re-think everything they think they know. Ignorance is easy, but our responsibility is to seek wisdom. For all those who feel disconnected, who wonder about the meaning of life, or who feel like there must be something more, this panoramic view of our culture will provide some interesting answers and a whole new way to see the big picture. Many people examine one aspect of our society and find fault - our politics, our educational system, or our treatment of mental diseases (for example) - but no other book looks at the whole and shows how everything works together. Here is your invitation to step outside of the dust storm, to see a view you never imagined. The author makes no claim to objectivity, but, as you'll see, a subjective view can offer great insight. So come along on a journey to look for our Mother and our Father...
