Beyond Animal, Ego and Time Wins 2012 Nautilus Award & Others

Posted on 15 April 2012 by Jerry

Beyond Animal, Ego and Time, by Jerry Parrick, has been named a 2012 Silver Nautilus Medal award winner. Identifying the book as one of the year’s best new books in the “Science – Cosmology” category, the Nautilus award recognizes books that “promote spiritual growth, conscious living and positive social change while at the same time stimulating the imagination and offering the reader new possibilities for a better life.”

Beyond Animal, Ego and Time, by Jerry Parrick, has been named a 2012 Independent Publisher Silver medal award winner. Identifying the book as one of the year’s best new books in the “Classical Studies/Philosophy” category, the IPPY award recognizes and encourages the work of “Publishers who exhibit the courage and creativity necessary to take chances, break new ground, and bring about change, not only to the world of publishing, but to our society.” Besides the works of small independent publishers, the IPPYs recognized books from presses such as Basic Books, Berrett-Koehler Publishers, Carnegie Museum of Arts and Design, Carnegie Mellon University Press, Kent State University Press, The MIT Press, Princeton University Press, and the Stanford University Press.

Beyond Animal, Ego and Time has been awarded a 2012 Eric Hoffer Book Award. Recognized in the Legacy Non Fiction category, the Hoffer Award review says in part “At first the subject matter might challenge you, but amazingly Parrick manages to pull it all together in an interesting and thought-provoking book. Never talking over his readers head, he breaks the topics down into easily digestible subtopics. Not quite the light reading that other books are, but an enjoyable read all the same.”

    Is the book excerpts from this blog-or another I am unfamiliar with-or separate? I shall ask my bookseller to order me a copy! Congratulations are in order, regardless. Well done!

    Hi Anil:
    I wrote the book, Beyond Animal, Ego and Time: The Human Odyssey before the Blog was started. The topics in the book serve as the rationale for the blog and the blog expands on themes identified and elaborated in the book. I am pleased you are finding the blog informative and are interested in reading the book.
