    Baquiast is not the only one to use the word "genius." Says Robert Steele, #1 Amazon reviewer for non-fiction, "The God Problem is a work of genius. In one book, more history, science, and philosophy than I have encountered in a lifetime of learning. This book stomps mud-tracks across disciplines and slashes with a razor, rendering the death of a thousand cuts to the complacency of status quo thinking. What some call heresy others will certainly call genius. A paradigm/mind-set/game changer.” Pledge $15 and we will send you a pdf of six chapters of The God Problem: How A Godless Cosmos Creates, the chapters that lay out The God Problem’s five outrageous scientific heresies. And we will email you a copy of Bloom’s manuscript of a cliche-challenging speech he gave at Yale--"Screw Sustainability: The Age of the Tornado Tamers--Busting the Bubble of Spaceship Earth."

    “I have just come out from the giddy ride through things of the mind and mathematics that is The God Problem. Bloom takes us on a magic carpet ride of ideas about: well, about everything. And it turns out that everything we knew about everything is probably wrong. ...an intellectual cave of wonders. Don't start this book late at night, for it will banish sleep," writes Robin Fox, University Professor of Social Theory, Rutgers University, author of "The Tribal Imagination: Civilization and the Savage Mind," and former director of research for the H. F. Guggenheim Foundation.
    Pledge $220 and get a beyond-complete electronic library of all of Howard Bloom’s books, including both of his highly praised but unpublished books. And brace yourself for controversy. This package includes a pdf of the entire author’s original manuscript of The God Problem (“Profound and extraordinary.” Yuri Ozhigov, Chair of Quantum Informatics, Moscow State University), plus a personally signed, paper, published copy of The God Problem, plus a Word file of the original author’s manuscript of The Lucifer Principle: A Scientific Expedition into the Forces of History ("Bloom's work marshals a quantity of evidence reminiscent of Darwin's 1859 Origin of Species." Wired), plus the Word file of the original author’s manuscript of Global Brain: The Evolution of Mass Mind from the Big Bang to the 21st Century ("A soaring song of songs about the amorous origins of the world, and its almost medieval urge to copulate." Kevin Kelly), plus the Word file of the original author’s manuscript of The Genius of the Beast: a Radical Re-Vision of Capitalism ("Impressive and stimulating. A tremendously enjoyable book." James Fallows, National Correspondent for The Atlantic, Chairman of the Board of the New America Foundation), plus the author’s original electronic manuscript of his unpublished book How I Accidentally Started The Sixties (“a monumental, epic, glorious literary achievement.” Timothy Leary) and, topping it all off, the highly controversial The Mohammed Code: Why a Desert Prophet Wants You Dead.

    Writes PJ Media's David Swindle, “The Mohammed Code is keeping me up at night. It's a terrifying book-- like a horror novel. It's the best book I've read on Islam.” Adds Amir Siddiqui, trainer to the stars of Pakistan's national cricket team and founder of the Symmetry gym in Dubai,
    “A Bloom book dealing with the evil tyrant Mohammad is a BRILLIANT idea Bloom’s writings have changed my life in ways I never thought I could change. He’s brave in the face of potential fatwas. Testicular fortitude and brains seem to go together in his case. Rare; but then again he is very special in more ways than one.” Which leads us to the subject of what you can get if you

    Meet Howard Bloom. Disinfo.com founder and Channel 4 TV host Richard Metzger says, "I have met God and he lives in Brooklyn. I could try to convince you that Bloom is next on a very short list that includes Darwin, Freud, Einstein and Buckminster Fuller, but Howard can probably do a much better job of convincing you himself." Adds James Brody, Ph.D., founder of Clinical Sociobiology and organizer of the "Healing The Moral Animal" seminars sponsored by The Cape Cod Institute and the Albert Einstein Medical College of Yeshiva University,"You have not lived until you have interacted with Howard Bloom." Pledge $700 and find out if Metzger and Brody are right. Meet Howard Bloom. In person, on the telephone, or on Skype--your choice. What's more, get a complete electronic library of all of Bloom’s books, including his two highly praised but unpublished books.

Dr. A.P.J. Kalam, 11th President of India.). Plus the author’s original electronic manuscript of his unpublished book How I Accidentally Started The Sixties (“Every page, every paragraph, every sentence sparkles with captivating metaphors, delightful verbal concoctions, alchemical insights, philosophic whimsy, absurd illogicals, scientific comedy routines, relentless, non stop waves of hilarity.” Timothy Leary) and the highly controversial The Mohammed Code: Why a Desert Prophet Wants You Dead (“Bloom’s superb articulation on affairs Islamic is a tribute to his intellect. Not even Muslims themselves today are capable of putting their case so eloquently.” Munawar Anees, Nobel Peace Prize Nominee, Advisor to the former Deputy Prime Minister of Malaysia, Founding Editor of Periodica Islamica, Founding Editor of The International Journal of Islamic and Arabic Studies).
