A well researched book, full of love for diversity without sacrificing reason. Must read for a compassionate application and contribution of science on a topic that has become an issue for so many.

loved this book. Should be read by anyone interested in the possibilities genetic engineering is currently looking at. The last half should be read by every politician in the world. Ultimately a call to inform ourselves, before it is too late, of the benefits and perils of the technology and to begin to discuss in which way we can use this technology to bring about positive outcomes for humanity.

A must read for the current zeitgeist

An appeal to reason in considering the provinence and possible outcomes of our current obsession with intersectionality. This book should be read by every politician who genuinely wants social cohesion and progress.

Both inspiring and frightening

A wonderful review of current scientific approaches to understanding our behaviour. It begins with a passionate dramatic scene which we hope to undesrtand, I was left at the end frightened of the book's conclusions. I don't know if Sapolsky realises this was offered in the section where he describes his visit with his wife back to see what happened with the rubbish dump primates. In between the lines is the similar thinking that drove the person he fantastically attacks at the beginning. After all we are just like cars.

Contextualising history is of extreme importance in the relativistic, self doubting period we are experincing. Remind yourself of what has been learnt and hope not to repeat, but also be inspired to continue to grow the best that Western culture has created.
