    1. Every page, nay, every word of this slender volume is a glittering gem of insight into the human condition It asks, OK, people, let s be serious are we fallen angels or are we highly emroidered apes The author takes the latter position and explains why in lighthearted, yet blistering, detail I am so grateful I came across this If you like Will Cuppy, you should read this one.

    2. Yes, it s THAT Clarence Day from his play and the well remembered by me, at least TV show from the 1950s , Life with Father In this little book Day considers how being evolved frm simians has made us what we are He also indulges in a little bit of speculation about how we as humans might be different had we been evolved from elephants, say, or lions A short, fun read Day is unjustly forgotten now I read this as a child and had remembered it for years Finally got an electronic copy through Projec [...]

    3. Banal, meandering musings on animals, human nature and evolution The author drifts from one topic to another without insight or direction Why he felt the need to share what appears to be nothing than a stream of consciousness with the world remains a mystery Possibly the most pointless book I ve ever read.

    4. I found a reference to this jewel in Lin Yutang s the importance of living It is a short essay about 40 pages written a century ago, that one can find in the Gutenberg Project.Yutang was absolutely right reading that essay of Day s, we can forgive all the busybodies who try to interfere with other people s lives because we begin to understand them.
