By Robert M. Sapolsky
Stanford neurobiologist and primatologist Robert M. Sapolsky is someone I would love to have a beer with at my favorite dive bar. For who else would have the answer to why we don’t try new things as we age? Or why we stick with relationships that are rarely rewarding? Why we’re sexually attracted to one another? (Oh geez, maybe I don’t want to know.) Or why dreams are so, well, dreamlike? This is the stuff I wanna discuss over my $2.75 whiskey and Coke! Sapolsky answers these questions and so much more in a witty, erudite and entirely fascinating book that will make you forget you’re learning. ‘Cause man, knowing you’re learning something really kills the buzz.
