    I wish this entire book had been written like the last couple of chapters were The really beautiful prose and philosophy was concentrated at the very end of the book The first and last chapters don't even seem to have come from the same pen Maybe that's the point maybe the author was kind of working his theory or what he wanted to say out as he went but to be honest he almost lost me with the first chapter If even half of the book was like the final pages it would be an easy five stars Worth a read if you have time to spare and an interest in the premise but in my opinion not worth making special room on your list for unless you skip straight to the last twenty or thirty pages

    The genre of memoir is admittedly one with which I have spent little time; however it's difficult to imagine another genre in which authors can put themselves so directly on the line especially in terms of relating candidly to the unpleasantries of life At the outset Werner approaches his narrative from the perspective that there is a sort of primal subconcious influence on our decisions which he terms the Pleistocene mind and it is in this context that the memoir takes shape As human animals Werner suggests ways in which our lives may be influenced as a result of our evolutionary conditioning which is uite interesting to consider albeit also somewhat speculativeThe real gems in this book come from Werner's personal experiences which often cut deeply to the core of what it is to be human And while in many cases I cannot relate directly to some of the memories shared I have found that these experiences have prompted a surprising amount of reflection about my own Like Werner I'm also known to check up on the spiders in and around my home which on the surface may appear to be silly but seems to demonstrate one of the fundamental issues arising in this book namely the development of a profound respect for life
