I'm a salesman with no medical training. Not going to lie, getting through the first 1/3 of this book was TOUGH with me listening at about 20% my normal speed! BUT, the payoff was worth this investment with this being one of the most important books I've read. Surprisingly it will not help me so much in sales as its helping me understand myself, how to relate better to other people, and how to boost my compassion -- especially to those with chronic stress. Well worth the read for anyone wishing to be a better human being.

Robert Sapolsky does not disappoint. This book is as detailed and scientific as any I've read on behaviour. The author delves in technical detail on all aspects of human behaviour, starting with the brain, the animal, the genes, society, environment, and as many factors as one can think of that can fit in a book this size.
This is not for the lame reader. It is meant for someone who has established basic knowledge on behaviour and wants to expand it.
We think we know a lot, but Sapolsky humbles us by explaining the complexity of the subject.
Highly recommended to anyone who wants to know the relatively knew science of behaviour from a truly scientific perspective.
