fascinating theory behind why we are the way we are
on 8 December 2000
This book sets out the theory that the human brain evolved,like the other organs, not to cope in todays society but in the world as it was thousands of years ago. Going further than the usual "sewing your wild oats" explanations it looks at not only "survival of the fittest" but also how the "best fit for the largest number" might also have effected natural selection and therefore the evolution of the human brain. Written in avery easy style this book does not claim to have all the answers but has the fascinating ring of truth.
