Abstract:
In this one-of-a-kind book, the author takes the reader through the evolutionary progression from the single celled protozoan to the complex multi-cellular human detailing how even in the lowliest of organisms, we could see the beginnings of intelligence. His main thesis is that humans should not compete on the basis of merit because merit is a biased measure normally distributed in the population on any given measure by virtue of people’s genetic compositions. He argues that rewarding on merit is rewarding for just being born. Society should therefore steer off the reward and punishment path based on merit.

  Review , 04/29/2012
Reviewer: Dr. D. Wilson
Neuropsychological and Behavioral Evidence offers a provocative examination of the biogenetic predisposition bestowed upon organisms in response to its surrounding environment. While this work may be seen as controversial in its tenants and thrust , it does provide insight to our genetic makeup and offers compelling explanation for our disposition, our personalities, and strengths and weaknesses that may impact and influence our behavior. The author takes you through the basic understanding of molecular structure and cell response systems, explaining how and why organisms respond to environmental stimuli according to their adaptive functions. He also provides compelling insight as to the endowed gifts individuals are equipped with from conception to evolutionary, fundamental/integral components of survival. His challenge to sociological theories versus genetic predisposition continues the nature vs. nurture debate. While I am not a champion of strict genetic predetermination on human behavior, Dr. Ikomi does proffer persuasive arguments for recognizing one’s unique endowed talent while challenging the notion that we do not have an influence over our fate. With that said, I recommend that this work be read to fully understand the genetic –molecular-biology connection and to explore how this connection could lend further enlightenment to culturecology and/or more encompassing views for psychoculturalbiogenetic theories that make us who we are.

  Humans are not in control , 12/19/2013
Reviewer: Flora Ukoli
This controversial book deals with the idea that we are not in control of our behaviors for basic biological and neuropsychological reasons. The arguments are compelling and the examples are incisive. You should buy and read this book and decide for yourself whether or not you believe we are indeed not in control of our behaviors.
