Survival: Evolutionary Rules for Intelligent Species Survival by Samuel Layne is a compelling and timely book with a prophetic message, one that if unheeded can lead to the ultimate extinction of our species. The author stipulates that Homo sapiens has evolved in a universe in the grip of an endless cycle of birth, life, and death and that that evolution has found a way to perpetuate life by evolving species capable of reproducing themselves. However, this cycle has been threatened and is about to be broken; in fact, it is being broken by the threats of climate change that have been continuously fueled by our egoistic culture that capitalizes on the principle of profit and power, innovation and technology. Our technology and our greed have pushed us past values that preserve life and while we perpetrate acts that threaten the well-being of the earth’s ecosystem, we continue to fool ourselves that all will be well.

In Survival, Samuel Layne sends out a clarion call and a powerful warning that humanity might not survive the devastating effects of climate change this time. The faint hope of survival for humanity is migration to another planet. But why migrate elsewhere when we can actually save our planet by freely choosing to live and to evolve within her ecosystem as did our forebears? Survival: Evolutionary Rules for Intelligent Species Survival is a book that everyone needs to read, a compelling essay that presents, with graphic and frightening images, the fate of Earth and of humanity. The author presents very compelling images and hard facts to illustrate the message of the book. This is a timely and revolutionary book that everyone should read; its message concerns us all.
