How many questions does the average human ask about their beliefs, and how many of these beliefs are foreign to or inherited from their environment? A Lot of Questions examines the possible reasons behind and consequences of different patterns of behavior in humans. The patterns are explored in different areas, including religion, history, mass shootings, brutal deaths, Covid-19, slavery, superiority, anarchy, materialism, and more. The book also looks into how Napoleon, Julius Caesar, Genghis Khan, Alexander the Great, and other well-known historical figures ​transformed themselves into household names. Jordan Neben clarifies that the book is not written to be the end but the beginning of the discussion. Therefore, readers are encouraged and taught to think critically about the ideas discussed in the book and their beliefs.

The seriously creative and elaborate hypothetical examples in A Lot of Questions make things so clear that I could almost feel layers of preconceived ideas and neurons wither in my brain. For example, religion formulation is exemplified with a prehistoric community that experiments with campfire dance and human sacrifice to ensure they get rain. Any logical thinker would agree that the scenarios and ideas in the book are sensible, regardless of their beliefs. I found the book deeply engaging and also tastefully humorous and conversational. A Lot of Questions is the sort of thought-provoking book we need in this generation to break free from harmful, outdated ideas and to make the best decisions for the good of all humanity. Jordan Neben is clearly an exemplary individual who fine-tunes his reasoning ability and asks the questions many shy away from. His book is a great place to start in joining the league of futuristic, liberated minds.
