This month we're reading Behave: The Biology of Humans at Our Best and Worst by Robert M. Sapolsky .
Why do we do the things we do?
Over a decade in the making, this game-changing book is Robert Sapolsky's genre-shattering attempt to answer that question as fully as perhaps only he could, looking at it from every angle. Sapolsky's storytelling concept is delightful but it also has a powerful intrinsic logic: he starts by looking at the factors that bear on a person's reaction in the precise moment a behavior occurs, and then hops back in time from there, in stages, ultimately ending up at the deep history of our species and its genetic inheritance.
We have no theme or topic for what we read. Attendees each nominate a book for next month, and the final selection is made by a poll on our SALA Facebook group.
We meet the 1st Sunday of each month. This month we'll meet on February 4th the same day as our Assembly.
Stick around at Loreley where we have our post-Assembly lunch. We will start the book club discussion at 3 pm.
