TOO MUCH OF A GOOD THING How Four Key Survival Traits Are Now Killing Us

Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Dan Woren

Contemporary Culture • 11 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2015

Dan Woren’s clear voice and broad phrasing range complement the flow of this thought-provoking audiobook. Written with exceptional lucidity, it’s a captivating evolutionary history of our biological traits and why they were more useful in pre-industrial societies than they are now. In accessible language, the author explains how natural selection and other factors have not changed these traits fast enough to be useful in today’s world where food is plentiful, jobs are sedentary, and physical danger is rare. Woren’s consistency and sensitivity to the book’s thematic shifts help make this a captivating audio that provides medical and historical background for eating healthfully, staying fit, and becoming more proactive in managing our bodies and emotional lives.
