It makes perfect sense,
Rezension bezieht sich auf: Nonzero: The Logic of Human Destiny (Gebundene Ausgabe)
Nonzero is the most interesting non-fiction book I've ever read. It has given me a new perspective on history, not to mention biology as well. The application of game theory to evolution - both cultural and biological - makes perfect sense. It evinces the essence of evolution and natural selection.
For such a heavy subject Wright's writing style is nicely conversational, and rather witty. But this does not mean that the book lacks rigor. Anyone who claims that he doesn't convincingly argue points and back up his thesis with facts is, well, crazy. A 16 page bibliography, 51 pages of endnotes (that are as informative as the text itself) and 2 appendices, prove that he has done his share research. He synthesizes a wealth of diverse information into clear, concise chapters. He presents other viewpoints and demonstrates their faults and merits. But the most impressive thing about the book is its unwavering logic. There is no mathematical/scientific proof of evolutionary direction in this book, only constant and persuasive logic. It makes sense.
