  • Awe-inspiring … This is the best scientific book written for non-specialists that I have ever read. You will learn more about human nature than in any other book I can think of, and you will be inspired

    Henry Marsh, author of Do No Harm
  • It’s no exaggeration to say that Behave is one of the best nonfiction books I’ve ever read

    Wall Street Journal
  • Behave is the best detective story ever written, and the most important. If you've ever wondered why someone did something – good or bad, vicious or generous – you need to read this book. If you think you already know why people behave as they do, you need to read this book. In other words, everybody needs to read it. It should be available on prescription (side effects: chronic laughter; highly addictive). They should put Behave in hotel rooms instead of the Bible: the world would be a much better, wiser place

    Kate Fox, author of Watching the English
  • Magisterial … This extraordinary survey of the science of human behaviour takes the reader on an epic journey … Sapolsky makes the book consistently entertaining, with an infectious excitement at the puzzles he explains … a miraculous synthesis of scholarly domains

    Steven Poole, Guardian
  • Truly all-encompassing … detailed, accessible, fascinating

    Telegraph
