Ingrid is intelligent and determined. She’s also desperate and running out of time. So, in a last throw of the dice, she executes her plan to hold up a bank. But she’s not interested in money – she wants to change the world. With a rag-tag group of hostages under her control, Ingrid faces her own demons. And as tensions within the bank ratchet up, the enigmatic Moses carves out a psychological pathway and transforms day-to-day discussions into illuminating life lessons.

This is a psychological thriller like no other. By turns compelling, satirical, and even darkly humorous, it sheds an honest light on what it truly means to be an ‘earthling’. Positively reviewed by leading psychologists, neuroscientists and experts of the mind, The Quick and Brutal Guide to Earth and Earthlings is a psychological tour-de-force.

Ingrid’s gripping story may be fiction, but it reflects a reality you’re already familiar with . . . and it shows you how to navigate your way through it. Open your eyes, and dare to face the brutal truth…

Review 2017

Earth and Earthlings: The Quick and Brutal Guide, is a psychological thriller by Moses Guru. The author has tried to imagine an ideal world, one where the people, or Earthlings, are expected to follow a certain set of commandments.

I felt like the book symbolises the time we are living in now, as global citizens. During Ingrid’s hold-up of a bank the group of hostages are people from different backgrounds, perhaps who are making the biggest impact on our world right now. They are poles apart from one another at the start of their day, but as the story progresses, the hostages soon realise how we all are connected to a large extent.

This might sound philosophical, but it is actually a psychological take on human nature. Coming to the story part, it is nicely written, with a nagging feel of ‘something about to happen’ at every juncture. The climax was good and the story finished well.

Overall, I’d recommend it and give it 4 stars. Definitely one to read once, especially as I said, this is something every global citizen can relate to in times like ours. Read it slowly and grasp it all up. Cheers!

About the Author

Moses is a classic 1975 model, made from medium-quality components.

He studied aerodynamics, business administration, software development, and trained in an array of other faculties such as leadership, life coaching, project management and psychology. Throughout, he has always maintained an inner desire to understand the underlying mechanics of things.

Moses started pondering and questioning the ‘mechanics of life and people’ in his army days and has been doing so ever since; he briefly investigated the mystical and the supernatural, but quickly and firmly returned to the pragmatic, the effective, the valid.

He thinks of himself as a non-mainstream thought architect, but has been told he sounds like a teacher. Maybe he is, in a way.

Moses and his family are currently based in New Zealand.
