Do you know why your nostrils flare when you’re scared? It’s easier to laugh with other people around? You might feel uncomfortable in a crowded elevator? The thing is, you just can’t help yourself — you’re only human! Part Desmond Morris’s The Naked Ape, part MAD Magazine, and all Jeff Szpirglas, this unique book provides a cultural, historical, and socio-biological perspective on human behavior.
