    This is a hugely important book and one worth reading. Why? Because Damasio has joined the ranks of scientists such as Nick Lane (mentioned in the book) and Jeremy England (not mentioned) who are giving the "modern" synthesis of evolution a much needed update.

    Such a cool and thought-provoking book, but a bit sloppy and unclear. The book explores the role of feelings guiding us through evolution and what the implications are for cultural evolution. I have read a lot of books in this genre so I had to do a ton of gap filling in several sections of the book...
