Yes and no. We have discussed one to two chapters per month since the start of the year and will conclude the book tonight. We were impressed by the breadth and depths of the author's knowledge of history, religion, anthropology, and especially archaeology. We still found the overall theory shaky. I am more convinced than some of my peers, though nowhere close to a "true believer" in bicameralism. It would have helped if we had a professional neurologist in our group with experience in some of these phenomena such as hypnosis and hallucinations.
