My Ishmael, by Daniel Quinn
    #877408 - 09/11/02 10:48 AM (14 years, 11 months ago)

It helped me understand a lot about how and why our society operates. I thought this book was great. Anyone else have opinions/discussion?

Yeah I remember it being a really good book as well. I haven't read it for a few years so I forget most of it, but I've been planning on reading it again. Come to think of it, I can probably pinpoint reading that book as being the catalyst for my period of personal growth that made me who I am today. Ever since then I started to think about the way things are in a deeper more profound way. Although I don't know if it was actually because the book was that good or maybe it was just what I needed at the time.

I may be mistaken but Daniel was here under the alias of Ishmael. My impression was he had a very subtle issue with Christianity. When I *reframed* his criticism in one discussion way back, he never followed it up.

The person that came to the shroomery with the nick "ishmael" was really daniel quinn? Far out.

I read the first book...loved it...bought My Ishmael..didnt finish it, because it just seemed like "ishmael for kids" or something...

Will probably try reading it again soon.

I've never read any of the other ishmael books. I was under the impression that they all pretty much get the same point across, though.
