I have assigned this book to "transformative" in my personal rating system. In his recently adopted "dual track" evolutionary idea, E.O. Wilson explains everything. At least he explains such as why one guy is a hard nosed Republican, another a softy Democrat. And why there is such intractable polarization. And so much more. That's why I say "improve your attitude."
There might be a bit much ant lore in the middle of the book for some folks, but I liked even that. After all Wilson is a world renowned ant guy too.
He's prolific, original and a fine writer. This book pulls you along like good narrative fiction, but its ideas are pure science.
It goes to my fixation that evolution explains pretty much everything about everything alive.
