Product description


Undeniably brilliant.

Big, brash, and a lot of fun.

Hugely entertaining...always sparkling and provoking.

Witty popular science that you enjoy reading for the writing as well as for the science. No other science writer makes me laugh so much.--Mark Ridley

Alters completely the way one thinks about thinking...its unforeseen consequences probably can't be contained by a book.--Christopher Lehmann-Haupt

Pinker has a knack for making the profound seem obvious....A fascinating bag of evolutionary insights.
