This book explores why humanity, the human species, could be on the road to extinction. What is it about the species' own behavior that has put it on this path? What features of the human mind and body, as well as our life in groups, define this journey? How might we think and act differently to prevent or slow the descent into the almost unimaginable levels of suffering such a trip imply?
