Reading the Signs -- The Meaning from a Single Perspective by Stephen Gareth Smith

Reading the Signs - The Meaning from a Single Perspective 'We live in a time which encapsulates a strange mixture of knowing and unknowing. The wealth of what has become known through advances in the sciences is considerable, and increases all the time. But in some ways this has served to distract us from the wider questions concerning the meaning of our lives: we are busy with our new toys, and we seem more than happy to settle for blurry, inconsistent and half-hearted attempts to understand the human condition. But it won't go away, and this paucity of meaning has come to cause problems both in the way that we relate to each other and in the way that we interact with the environment that we are living in...' 60,000 wds. Profit resulting from the sale of this book which exceeds the amount needed to live simply, will be used to effect positive changes in the world.

I read new, exciting writers and established authors before publication and there is a great website full of brilliant books and opinions.


It's the first site that I visit when deciding on the next set of books to buy. A particular treat is being able to download an extract.
