Product description


"Martin has a passion for taking informal ideas that people like me find theoretically important and framing them as mathematical models. He allows our intuitions about what leads to what to be put to the test." (STEVEN PINKER The New York Times)

"A fantastic journey into the science of cooperation, with important implications for both individuals and society alike." (Richard Wiseman, bestselling author of 59 SECONDS)

"Supercooperators looks beyond The Selfish Gene and invites us to think afresh about evolution. Contrary to the simplistic idea that selfishness is the only strategy for survival, the brilliant Martin Nowak proves that cooperation is also vitally important. This rich and rewarding book teems with new ideas and insights, which co-author Roger Highfield makes wonderfully lucid and entertaining." (Graham Farmelo, winner of the Costa Biography Award)

"Groundbreaking . . . SuperCooperators is part autobiography, part textbook, and reads like a best-selling novel." (Manfred Milinski Nature)

"Unlike many general audience science books, this one delivers on its promise of providing an interesting and entertaining tour through the complexities of natural selection and the hard science behind the human behaviour." (Irish Times)

"An absorbing, accessible book about the power of mathematics... Nowak is one of the most exciting modelers working in the field of mathematical biology today." (New York Times Book Review)

"The nexus of evolutionary biology, game theory and neuroscience provides the most exciting avenue, and this book is an excellent example of the genre...all politicians can draw inspiration and ideas from the intellectual resources of this exciting approach." (David Willetts Financial Times)

"Stimulating...the combination [of Nowak and Highfield] works magnificently well. ... The book is highly readable, and it's an enthralling piece of work." (David Erdal Scotsman)
