We are capable of savage acts of violence but also spectacular feats of kindness: is one side of our nature destined to win out over the other? Every act of human behaviour has multiple layers of causation, spiralling back seconds, minutes, hours, days, months, years, even centuries, right back to the dawn of time and the origins of our species. In the epic sweep of history, how does our biology affect the arc of war and peace, justice and persecution? How have our brains evolved alongside our cultures?
Slow to start but it all comes together

Interesting book but narration is truly dreadful
Difficult to pay attention to the actual content without getting distracted by the narrators annoying and inappropriate voice. Why didn’t Sapolsky himself just narrate it?!! He has a brilliant voice...
