Reviews

"Starred review. Readers of diverse perspectives will recognize [Pagel's] timely wisdom." -- Booklist
"Gorgeously written, elegantly argued, Pagel demonstrates that genes are only a small part of the human success story; minds and culture are the larger part. A compelling read that allows us to appreciate everything around us with fresh eyes." -- David Eagleman, author of Tales of the Afterlives and Incognito
"An intriguing combination of information...with an optimistic prediction of a future global society in which inventiveness and cooperation prevail." -- Kirkus Reviews
"Starred review. Pagel does an excellent job of using evolutionary biology to discuss the origins of religion, music, and art, and the reason why, cross-culturally, we generally share a sense of morality." -- Publishers Weekly
"This richly rewarding work of science explains the evolutionary significance of living in a collaborative culture.

Human evolution may be the hottest area in popular science writing, ahead even of books about cosmology and the brain. Within this crowded field, Mark Pagel's Wired for Culture stands out for both its sweeping erudition and its accessibility to the non-specialist reader." -- Clive Clarkson - Financial Times
