Summary: Much of the book is written like a diary and presupposes you are not really grown up till you are 75 years old. The author is 77 years old and considers himself to be a boring grown up now. The book contains 17 chapters and 12 appendices (expanding on the various chapters) which are about some experiences of his own growing up that he considers to have a message, involve lessons to be learned, are of general interest or are about things one may have wondered about but never took the time to full morey understand. The first chapter sets the tone for the early chapters which are rather light reading. The remainder of the book (appendices included) take on a deeper and at times a more somber note. The word "cooperation" is woven throughout the various chapters and in Chapter 16 a case is made for insects (cockroaches in particular) inheriting the earth because they know how to cooperate with each other to survive, after we human beings crusade ourselves into extinction, and go the way of the dinosaur. Religious leaders are implored to surface and get involved: Cooperate with other religious leaders. Quell the extremists. Let there be universal freedom of religion with mutual celebration and respect. Eventually let a universal system of weights, measures, time, mathematics, languages and religions evolve. Some of these are already established, so please get on with it. less
