"Curiosity, awareness, attention: Those are the tools of our everyday survival," posits Laurence Gonzales. "We all must be scientists at heart or be victims of forces that we don't understand." Suggesting that we draw from our evolutionary history to overcome our own laziness as well as the inherent hazards of life, Gonzalez finds that natural laws profoundly affect our actions. Whether you are climbing a mountain or the corporate ladder, this book can reveal the hidden causes and costs of our behavior—whether as individuals, or as a species whose decisions may be leading to disaster.
