Friedrich Nietzsche called the human body "a big sagacity; a plurality with one sense; a war and a peace; a flock and a shepherd." All those functions and battles come alive in this popular science book that traces the evolution of humankind in functions, health, and disease. Contemporary readers will be especially intrigued by Lieberman's account of chronic diseases such as type-2 diabetes, obesity, and heart disease as instances of "dysfunction" in action. Harvard professor Lieberman is a graceful writer whose insights and remedies carry persuasive force.
