'Brilliant, eye-opening, and absolutely inspiring - and a riveting read.' Cass Sunstein, author of How Change Happens and co-author of Nudge

From the authors of New York Times bestseller The Genius of Dogs comes a new popular science book about how 'friendliness' is in fact the key factor in the survival of our species. In exploring this hugely ambitious topic, Hare and Woods present an elegant new theory called self-domestication, looking at animal (mainly dog and ape) examples of cooperation and empathy and what this can tell us about the evolutionary success of Homo sapiens… It has huge implications for our society today.
