Publisher's Summary

Laurence Gonzales turns his talent for gripping narrative, knowledge of the way our minds and bodies work, and bottomless curiosity about the world to the topic of how we can best use the lessons of our evolutionary history to overcome the hazards of everyday life.

He finds that natural laws profoundly affect our actions, and he reveals the hidden causes and costs of our behavior, whether as individuals or as a species, whose decisions may be leading to darker times.

Whether you are climbing a mountain or the corporate ladder, Everyday Survival will change the way you view your choices in our complex, dangerous, and quickly changing world.

Don’t waste your time

His earlier books were very good, but with this he bought into the politics of climate change and ruined what could have been another good book.

A reread that really holds up over the years

Still a great read after all these years, and I'm glad it does. I highly recommend to anyone looking for something different, and with regards to the mind, how it relates to our world, and how they shape one another.
