Some interesting historical material; though it tends to be repetitive and long-winded. Well written,though.
1.0 out of 5 starsthe book is great, just not for class.

I had this book for a semester in my humanities class and it was tough. this book has so much information, trying to retain more than a couple of pages gets overwhelming. The concepts of human behavior, various cultures and incredibly detailed analyses on shipwrecks were honestly fairly fascinating to learn about, but having to know the mundane details of what sort of culture likes to hook up with each other really ruined enjoying this otherwise fine good quality book. Also, i barely read so that should say enough. alright book, would not take test again.
5.0 out of 5 starsNatural Humanism, why we are basically good.

This is a fascinating and important book. It sets out why human behaviour evolves towards more cooperation and order - it promotes survival. This explains clearly that morality is natural (and does not require any divine prompting). If everyone understood this fundamental point the world would get better faster. This, not by coincidence, is also the theme of the book.
Working in HR I found this book quite fascinating in its comparisons to the animal kingdom and findings relating to a blueprint for society. I like a bit of data, so seeing some of the research gives much food for thought.
