By Robert Boyle - Published on Amazon.com
In fairness to the author I was looking for a book on the subject of teleology (the philosophy of "final cause", or ends and purposes) and not a speculative / SF novel about twin brothers. I have not read enough of this novel to judge its merits as a work of fiction (the opening chapters were not especially promising -- but who knows? -- as an SF topic the idea is certainly original enough), but it is NOT a text on the philosophy of teleology. Hence the neutral review and the caveat. The title came up with my search for "teleology" among other books (all philosophical texts) on the philosophical subject with at least two having the same exact title: "Teleology". Had the novel been called "The Physician's Desk Reference 2011" or "Obamacare" at least some customers would have been equally mislead. Moral --know what you are buying, and don't judge a book by its cover (title). ;-P
