I started reading this one back in June, and it's a testament to the chaos of my life since then that I've only just now finished it (especially given the slow going on the other two books I'm in the midst of). I have been frequently tempted to share long passages from this book with my LJ readers as the perceptions of "human nature" in Why the Reckless Survive are real gems, but I figured that Mr. Konner and his publishers would probably prefer me not excerpting half his book on-line here, and I reckon that those intrepid souls who have me on their Friends List would just as well not have reams of stuff to read through. I do recommend getting this one, however, especially as cheaply as it can be had on the used market!
I'm not sure what I'm going to start next ... I'm still plowing through John Leslie's Universes, which is quite a struggle as I strongly disagree with his "design" stance and he seems to be grasping at any half shred of data that might prove a "created universe". I'm hoping to finish that up before slotting in something new!
