    1. Zerzan has got good ideas, but not a very captivating manner of presenting them. Most of the stuff he says here was said more elegantly or with better supporting data by Derrick Jensen, Pierre Clastres, Marshal Sahlins, and even guys like Edward Abbey and Aldo Leopold.Either way, we are treated to the now-predictable argument that progress and civilization are corrupting our human spirit (actually, a short essay on "Technology" at the end of the book is one of the highlights as he briefly discus [...]


    2. The fact this isn't satire. The fact this isn't a joke. The fact people actually think this is a good idea.The fact it's essentially a philosophical rendering of The Paleo Diet (written several decades early).The fact this is partially based on the philosophical ideals of the fucking Unabomber. The fact the people who like this book don't see the term "luddite" as an insult.Fuck I feel bad for how much I laughed at this.An-Prims, y'all are on some weird shit.


    3. Öncelikle belirtmem gerekir ki, çeviri çok güzel. Bu konuda Cemal Atila'yı tebrik etmek gerekir. Zerzan teorisini tamamen insanın doğadan kopuşuyla, bu nedenle de yabancılaşmasıyla açıklıyor. Zerzan'a göre; hayvanların evcilleştiğini söylerken, hiç insanın evcilleşmesinden bahsetmiyoruz, oysa bizler de evcilleşmiş mahluklarız. Zerzan insanlığın felaketinin tarım devrimiyle başladığını belirtiyor. Avcı-toplayıcı toplumlarda mutluluk, bolluk, şiddetsizlik vs. [...]


    4. I warm to Zerzan as a reader: he really hammers away at his texts and you can compile quite a reading list just by skimming one of the articles in this collection. I wonder if he ever reads anything light and entertaining



    5. The ideas which John Zerzan explores in this series of essays are interesting and with a little work they could even be compelling. However, without applying analytic rigor to these ideas and making a coherent case for them to the reader, Zerzan appears to be preaching to the choir instead of making the case for the values and sense of the world he appears to take as self-evident. A disappointing missed opportunity.




    6. Same as the other reviews hit or miss on the essays. Some good ideas, and the update is timely, but nothing really new.



    7. I guess I don't find this guy as radical or extreme as others have. He has some good points which he has researched and supports adequately; everything else is a matter of perspective



    8. Not quite as captivating as Running on Emptiness, but Zerzan still presents quite a bit of food for thought here.
