Review: The FAQs of Life Beyond Civilization

It was inevitable that Daniel Quinn write this slim, to-the-point book that publicly answers the myriad of questions his readers bring to him after exposure to Ishmael, The Story of B and My Ishmael.

Beyond Civilization: Humanity's Next Great Adventure is essential reading for anyone intrigued with Quinn's ideas. In crisp, no-nonsense question and answer format, Daniel Quinn gives both intimately personal reflections and provocative Big Picture suggestions about the many paths that will hopefully take us, in Quinn's sense, beyond civilization.

In addition to the new content in the main body of the book, Beyond Civilization is a valuable addition to the dedicated Quinn reader's library as this book includes a topically-arranged cross-reference index to the many important ideas captured in Ishmael, The Story of B and My Ishmael.

Anyone interested in Sohodojo's Small Is Good Business Webs R&D and social action agendas will see strong parallels with Quinn's ideas about New Tribal Ventures. These complementary themes are so deep that we've launched Plan B: The Business Beyond Civilization Project (see link below).
