really liked it
Read in October, 2006

This was a very interesting book, but slightly depressing, as it discussed adaptive explanations for nice behavior. I think it is very useful to understand the way niceness has helped our species to survive, but don't read this when you're searching for meaning in life or changing direction into an unknown trajectory...
