I read this book of essays for my bookclub. I'll add more thoughts after tomorrow's discussion.

----------------
My bookclub discussed this title last month. Overall members enjoyed Sapolsky's humorous, informal writing style. His essays discuss a variety of topics ranging from the very lighthearted (People Magazine's 50 Most Beautiful People) to the most serious (Munchausen by Proxy syndrome, a horrible phenomenon in which parents harm otherwise healthy children in order to receive medical and emotional attention). At times I wished the analysis went a little deeper, or the humor wasn't quite so flippant, but I enjoyed breezing through the quick studies of human behavior.
