IN THE PRESS
"Hunt, dissatisfied by the dichotomy between traditional religion and scientific atheism, has chosen to follow a different path, pairing a spiritual awareness with a respect for modern science. His work is an attempt to tie these two facets of existence together and to provide the reader with spiritual direction in an age dominated by science and reason."
"By reading Eco, Ego and Eros, you are about to embark on such a voyage of discovery that uses rational analysis by some of the greatest Western thinkers, combined with the experimental and theoretical investigation of nature, to make sense of the riddle of our existence."
"This book shows the sizzling future of clean energy with enough enthusiasm to dispel the doom-and-gloom that paralyzes most discussions of climate change."
