'Could you please send me an extra copy of your book? [Mine] is on loan because it was so appreciated.'
The late Sir Laurens van der Post, who was a pre-eminent philosopher, author of 24 books and a close friend of Carl Jung
'Your [Jeremy Griffith's] work is a cool breeze in the furnace of human history. How badly the world needs such optimism and generosity.'
Dr Bob Brown, Australian MP and founder of the Australian conservation movement
'Your work 'Free: The End of The Human Condition' will be very useful and certainly very appreciated by all the researchers of this laboratory.'
Professor Henry de Lumley, National Museum of Natural History, Institute for Human Palaeontology, Paris
'I consider the book ['Free'] to be the work of a prophet and I expect the author to become recognised as a saint.'
The late Dr Ronald Strahan, eminent Australian biologist, former director of Sydney's Taronga Park Zoo and former Executive Officer of the National Photographic Index of Australian Wildlife at the Australian Museum
'I found the book ['Free'] stimulating. I shall gladly keep one copy and give the other one to our library.'
Dr Barz, President of the C.G. Jung-Institute Zurich, Switzerland
'Thank you for your letter and Griffith's book. I was trying to find the book and you saved me the trouble.'
Dr David Suzuki, world renowned conservationist
'Jeremy Griffith spoke about his concepts [from 'Free'] on my radio program 'The Search For Meaning' and the interview received the second most enthusiastic public response in the program's [twice weekly for 8 years] history.'
Caroline Jones, senior radio journalist who has been awarded the Order of Australia and the Media Peace Prize Gold Citation
‘Was Jeremy Griffith struck by lightning on the road to Damascus…Such was my cynicism reading the summary…Then whack! Wham! Reading on I was increasingly impressed and then converted by his erudite explanation for society’s competitive and self-destructive behaviour. His is not a band-aid cure for mankind’s sickness but a profound thinking through to the biological cause of the illness.’
Macushla O’Loan, Executive Woman’s Report magazine
‘Jeremy Griffith’s book Free: The End of The Human Condition…certainly represents a contribution to the modern comprehension of the behaviour patterns of the human species. Moreover, its insight into our past in a search for key references and explanations is enlightening.’
Dasa Sasic, Yugoslavian Sociology Journal Facts and Tendencies
'The Publishing House of the Bulgarian Academy of Sciences is one of the oldest on the Balkan Peninsula, established in 1869. Our publishing programme includes books, reports, monographs, periodicals, etc. from all spheres of pure and applied science...We will appreciate if there is a possibility to send us a copy of the Book [Free], as we would like to present it to an adviser with a view to translating and publishing it in Bulgaria.'
The Publishing House of the Bulgarian Academy of Sciences
‘['Free'] raised in me a thousand questions of the variety: “how can he make such a categorical statement about such and such—where’s his evidence for it?” etc, etc. I suggest you persevere, “suspend your disbelief” for a few hours, and read this book—it could have much to say to many of us—especially those interested in the life sciences. No, Griffith makes no attempt to “explain away” altruism, love and integrated behaviour. On the contrary his aim is to champion these.’
Patti Burke, Southern Crossings, alternative lifestyle magazine
