The Thread that Came Back from the Dead?
I think it is amusing how many people dismissed Bonner's book (typically with rude non-arguments of the "blah blah blah" variety) when it was published in 2006. Of course, even a stopped clock is right twice a day ... but it is difficult not to look back now and suggest that he was rather prescient.
"To know what you prefer, instead of humbly saying Amen to what the world tells you you ought to prefer, is to have kept your soul alive". Robert Louis Stevenson, An Inland Voyage (1878)
