Featured Staff Pick

This is the single greatest science book I've ever read.  Sapolsky's incredibly accessible and witty language introduces concepts at both high and low levels, from neurochemistry to large evolutionary trends, to paint a picture of the psyche of the human race - why do we lie, steal, cheat, empathize, and love?  Read "Behave" for both the intricate science and the intriguing conversation-starting anecdotes that Sapolsky communicates so well.  10/10       - Evan
