Summary

Summary

Laurence Gonzales turns his talent for gripping narrative, knowledge of the way our minds and bodies work, and bottomless curiosity about the world to the topic of how we can best use the lessons of our evolutionary history to overcome the hazards of everyday life. He finds that natural laws profoundly affect our actions, and he reveals the hidden causes and costs of our behavior, whether as individuals or as a species whose decisions may be leading to darker times. Whether you are climbing a mountain or the corporate ladder, Everyday Survival will change the way you view your choices in our complex, dangerous, and quickly changing world.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Well-written and fascinating…this is the kind of book you want everyone to read.” Cleveland Plain Dealer
“A cornucopia of cutting-edge ideas from science and philosophy, a page-turner that’s by turns exhilarating and deeply disquieting.” Charleston City Paper
“Mixing recent scientific findings with compelling anecdotes, he describes how we have turned off or muted the evolutionary sensors that helped save our ancestors from extinction and offers telling glimpses into why we really act and react the ways we do.” Barnes & Noble, editorial review
“A plea for heightened awareness of our surroundings, and good reading for the how-things-work set.” Kirkus Reviews
