it was amazing

Argues that even if you accept the premise that people are
selfish maximizers of their own utility, it does not
follow that every action they perform is selfish. Being
altruistic can, in fact, guarantee your long-term well-being
-- virtue really is its own reward. Argued economically
and evolutionarily, in a non-BS way. Very geek-friendly.
