Breaking the Code of History

A Map for the Future

'BREAKING THE CODE OF HISTORY is the culmination of decades of personal research across a wide range of disciplines. Murrin compellingly argues that human behaviour is not random, but determined by specific, quantifiable and predictable patterns fuelled by our need to survive and prosper. According to Murrin, to resolve the issues confronting us today we cannot merely study the past. We also need to understand the precise algorithm of behaviour that has caused us to re-enact the same destructive cycles in ever-greater magnitudes.'
