Praise

“Husband and wife team Bret Weinstein and Heather Heying bring their vast knowledge of evolutionary biology to bear on the problems that beset us. Wide-ranging and illuminating, A Hunter Gatherer’s Guide to the 21st Century posits an intriguing, surprising, and profound view of human nature.”
–Dr. Jordan B. Peterson, author of Beyond Order, 12 Rules for Life, and Maps of Meaning
 
“This book guides readers through the most pressing puzzles of our time, developing their conceptual toolkit without being didactic. Razor sharp and fun to read, A Hunter Gatherer’s Guide to the 21st Century secures Weinstein and Heying’s reputation as heroes who stand up not only for academic freedom, but also moral principles.”
–Jonathan Haidt, coauthor of The Coddling of the American Mind and The Righteous Mind
 
“Bret and Heather are highly regarded evolutionary biologists, very clear thinkers and communicators, and as attested to by their notoriety from the madness that their school put them through, they value scientific truth over political correctness. I can’t wait to read this book.”
–Robert Sapolsky, author of Behave and A Primate’s Memoir
 
“I have never read such a bold, well-researched, and succinct exploration of the puzzling predicament we find ourselves in. Anyone who wonders why the most comfortable society in history—our own–has such astronomical rates of depression, anxiety and poor health will find abundant answers in A Hunter-Gatherer’s Guide to the 21st Century.”
–Sebastian Junger, author of The Perfect Storm, War, Tribe, and Freedom
 
“Heather Heying and Bret Weinstein are the brilliant, irresistible professors every student dreams of having. In their hands, complex technical ideas become accessible–and exhilarating. A Hunter-Gatherer’s Guide To The 21st Century is based on serious science, but it reads like an adventure story.”
–Christina Hoff Sommers, philosopher, Resident Scholar at the American Enterprise Institute, and host of “The Factual Feminist”
 
“Every once in a while, you come across an academic who gives you a few ideas that become central to your way of viewing the world. A Hunter-Gatherer’s Guide to the 21st Century has given me at least five working concepts from their deep dive into evolutionary biology that have permanently shifted the way I see human evolution and culture. I am forever grateful for their work and keen insights.”
–Jamie Wheal, Executive Director of The Flow Genome Project and coauthor of Stealing Fire
