Through simple examples and common sense, you will learn how our senses and our ability to throw rocks—not evolution—made humans out of our early ancestors. Find the awesome influence of footwear on our energy, behavior, and self-esteem. Learn about the feet and the energy and secrets they hold. Find out how the balance system in the inner ear is influencing memory, attention span, emotions, confidence, perception of self and reality, and more. Read about the devious influence of TV on the minds of our young; and how the simple experience of watching TV, now reshapes our values and changes our way of life. The awe-inspiring and jaw-dropping stories are written with a touch of hoopla for good measure. The author, a man of great curiosity and determination, writes about his childhood dream to take a daring walk on a circus tightrope, and what that dream prophesized.

I really enjoyed reading this book and here is the only problem I have encountered. I have to keep going back and reading more. This is a book that has a lot of this and a lot of that in so many areas. The topics are wide and changeable. You might want to read about TV programs, but let me note, this will not be an regular read, believe me. I've learned some on how to change my mood, and have more confidence. That's always a good thing. There is a section titled, "Reason vs. Emotion that I found very interesting. You will definately go away with a different outlook and more knowledge than you thought you would. How about a section that is titled, "Our Humanity Began When We learned to Kill Without Getting Our Hands Bloodied." I did say different, did I not. Now my favorite out of the entire book is the section on feet. I have marked it so that I can share the information with others and use it myself. I also plan to look into some of the items being offered. I really liked the foot pages. I did enjoy this book, it has many a twist that I never knew were coming in just about every topic, and I enjoyed each one . It's interesting and definitely will give you a lot to share and a lot to think about. Good job. 5.0 out of 5 stars Initially Challenging, Eventually Common Sense, February 27, 2012 By Grady Harp (HALL OF FAME REVIEWER) (REAL NAME) “Author Alexander Nestoiter is probably one of the more fascinating characters we are likely to encounter. As he shares from his personal history... he brings us some concepts about our human history, our body functions, our interactions with each other and the world at large in a series of seemingly complex ideas that he smoothes out before us on the page, making his ideas so warmly and reasonably welcome that he seems like our best and most credible friend.” ”...There are so many avenues for stretching our minds that the author spreads before us that this is one of those books you pray will never end. What he writes will entertain and inform us and then later stop us in our tracks and reach that Ah-Ha moment of learning how to see our selves and our world, refreshingly differently.” - Kirkus Reviews "Our fate lies not in stars but in our feet. Nestoiter's theory (is) that the neurological challenge(s) drove (the) human brain, and that the environment surrounding the feet decisively influences the psyche. Paved surfaces and shoes sever our connection to reality, causing emotional distress. Provides food for thought."
