"Resonating with our most profound life experiences, this book explains why we trust other people and form lifelong bonds, and why we ignore these connections at our peril. Pinker answers crucial questions about human relationships in a digital age, such as: How important is face-to-face interaction as children develop new skills, when adults fall in love, when they negotiate business transactions, and as they age? How did humans evolve such finely-tuned barometers of trust and betrayal--and do these mechanisms work if you're not face-to-face with your partner?

Sixty years ago the philosopher Jean-Paul Sartre wrote 'hell is other people'. Now, new evidence shows us that he was utterly wrong. Beginning from the first moments of life and at every age and stage, close contact with other people - and especially with women - affects how we think, whom we trust, and where we invest our money. Our social ties powerfully influence our sense of life satisfaction, our cognitive skills, and how resistant we are to infections and chronic disease. While information about diet, exercise, and new classes of drugs were the life-changing breakthroughs of the

Why do women constitute 49% of law school graduates but only 27% of practicing lawyers? Pinker presents a case for a biological explanation of why men and women make different career choices, proposing that hormones are a determining factor. The hormones predominant in men lead to action, focus and often to competitive and rigidly hierarchical professions such as law, while women's hormones lead them to focus on empathy and social interaction, and careers as teachers or social workers. c2008
