Publisher's Summary

The Art of Hunting Humans is a 2019 Readers’ Favorite Silver Medal Winner!

Imagine there was an evil alien society that had this bizarre interest in hunting humans for leisure.

Now, imagine they prepared a full guide to teach their own kind how we think, socialize, and most of all, how to spot our weaknesses.

Finally, imagine that you got your hands on a copy of one of those guides. Wouldn’t you want to read it to understand if there really is a threat? If there was, wouldn’t you want to learn what the aliens know about us to better prepare to defend yourself and those you love?

The Art of Hunting Humans presents key aspects of the human mind. With straightforward language, weird metaphors, and practical examples, it enables listeners to understand human behavior and evaluate their lives from an outsider’s perspective.

Designed to challenge rather than comfort, The Art of Hunting Humans sets itself apart from anything else written in its field. The result is a skeptical, radical explanation of the mind that provides extraordinary insights into the inner worlds of human beings.

The age-old art of human hunting is one you must orchestrate with care. In The Art of Hunting Humans, you’ll learn essential facts about Earth’s smartest primate and discover mistakes that are common among hunters while in pursuit of their prey.

Whether you are an experienced hunter or a novice, this guide is essential listening to. In it, you’ll learn the major steps for a hunt - from correct observation and selection of your prey to choosing the tastiest bait. It will reveal how to leverage humans’ self-ignorance and strange behaviors and expose flaws of which they are oblivious. At the end of the book, you will have the opportunity to meet the Superiors - creatures like no other. You’d better be ready!

Even if you’re a seasoned hunter, The Art of Hunting Humans provides extraordinary insights into human behavior as well as tips that will blow your mind.

Almost everything in this book is a trap. Enjoy!

Quirky and thought provoking

Not your usual book on human nature. I appreciated the offbeat angel used. The author gave me a fresh perspective on a topic I've been studying for years. If you're interested in human behavior it's worth the time investment in my opinion.

JUST READ IT ONCE YOU WILL UNDERSTAND WHY I LOVE IT SO MUCH :)

Unique delivery for a complex subject

This book takes a very unique approach to the inner workings of the human mind and delivers it through the lens of an “outsiders” perspective. I really enjoyed the concepts delivered in this book and if you approach it with an open mind I believe it is a good resource to spur introspection and self reflection. Using the concepts of this book can assist you in identifying what drives you and what improvements you can make to become a better version of yourself.

A different way to explore your own mind

Good book. Simple concepts told in a different way. Helps you understand the importance of mindfulness and self reflection. Not political at all as another reviewer had stated.

Absolutely amazing!

My simple words can not explain how this text has challenged and comforted me. Very few will truly understand. As we evolve this book will be a hidden gem for weary travelers and the overwhelmed. Please know that you are not alone.

Thought Provoking

TAOHH is a very interesting narrative that gives readers a keen understanding of the ways that most people are prone to exploitation based on their predispositions toward a given stimuli...all from the perspective of the stimulator or "hunter". A very thought provoking and joyous read.

Great read. but potentially controversial.

Warning!!!! Don't listen to it if you like the “PC culture”. The book is not a completely comfortable read (the author constantly challenges the reader), but it was enlightening.

I first heard about this book when a friend recommended an article from the same author called "15 commandments of stupidity - A Politically incorrect guide for understanding how we got here." Anyone interested in this book should go to wannabewise.com and have a try. it is a short and fun article. Then, decide for yourself if this book is for you or not....

The book offers an interesting interpretation of human behaviour. The way the author explains our mind is outstanding. Funny enough you will find yourself "hunting" immediately after reading, and the way you look at the world will be changed forever.

Recommended.
I've only given 5 stars to Sapiens, Homo Deus, The hard thing about hard things, and Good strategy bad strategy. So, 5 stars is high praise for me.

Repetitively disappointing

The most superfluous sentence of the book comes at the end when the author writes, "I'm not a professional writer"
