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.
