Review by the.ken.petersen
In my humble opinion, this book only lacked two things; Emotion and Intelligence.I know that the modern ethos is that everyone can be the same, we can all be the World's greatest salesperson but, do we really all want to be clones? Our emotions are not at the beck and call of logic and maybe, just maybe, we will be a better civilisation when we recognise this. We seem to feel the need to label, and then correct, every trait that does not dovetail with our own. I was recently reading a biographical article about John Ogdon, arguably Britain's best ever pianist, in which the great man, known in his time as a flawed genius, was referred to as, autistic. I am no doctor and so, would not feel in a position to challenge this 'diagnosis', but perhaps we spend too long looking at people's perceived faults and issuing corrective advice. Perhaps Gill Hanson and her ilk could have sorted out Ogdon's emotional problems and the World would have had another ordinary bloke, rather than a great pianist. Personally, I rejoice in my flawed emotions: I just wish I could play the piano, paint, write coherently.... ANYTHING!!!!!
