Super Life: New Book Offers Better Understanding of Humans and Their Environment

Charlotte, NC, September 15, 2008 --( Outskirts Press author Stephen G. Boyce presents his highly anticipated science/nature book, Super Life: How You Can Survive and Create Environments for Living. This affordably priced, nonfiction discourse provides answers to some age-old questions, such as: What is nature? What is life? Why am I here?

Super Life offers readers scientifically validated conclusions and evidence regarding basic questions about nature, the environment, and man’s place in it.

Since living organisms began to flourish on the earth, they survived by diverting energy from their environment to themselves in order to drive metabolic processes and resist disorganization by outside forces. Humans followed, and after thousands of years of producing diverse progeny and struggling through a sequence of uncertain environments of nature, a relatively few “super” humans learned to manipulate and enhance their natural environments.

Today, schools of natural resources, medicine, liberal arts, and other disciplines contribute to developing super lives by accumulating and passing on the knowledge and technology to create efficient and pleasant living environments. We thrive despite environments that are rarely efficient and pleasant. We have had to learn to manage disorganizing forces like earthquakes and hurricanes, and have developed ways to limit the impact of these threatening events.

Stephen Boyce has made it his mission to educate young people and enhance their lives by becoming involved in the process of nature, life, and environments. His philosophy? With knowledge and technology, any human can live a super life.

Super Life is written in an easy-to-read format and is aimed at readers between the ages of ten and twenty-five.
