Nov 1, 2012: EvoEbooks to distribute Kindle version

I'm pleased to announce that the Kindle version of Shamans Among Us will be distributed by EvoEbooks, a new publishing house dedicated to publishing ebooks on applied evolution.


“Shamans Among Us is a thought-provoking essay on the idea that the
psychology of people who we today diagnose with schizophrenia is akin
to that of shamans in ancestral societies. Joseph Polimeni’s scholarly
book challenges several traditional concepts of both evolutionary
biology and medicine. I strongly recommend it to all those who dare to
think outside the box.”

– Martin Brüne, MD
Author of Textbook of Evolutionary Psychiatry:
The Origins of Psychopathology


“What an aptly named book. Joseph Polimeni raises the interesting
notion that present-day schizophrenics are, in a real sense, descendents
of latter-day shamans— evolutionary selectees who served the
important societal function of communication with the supernatural.”

– David Koulack, PhD,
Author of To Catch a Dream: Explorations of Dreaming


“As with other evolutionary theories, it casts a new light on matters
which were previously confusing and even inexplicable.”
