News & Opinion: Are we still monkeys?
I'm currently reading the bestseller Guns, Germs, and Steel. I'm only on page 45 so can't say much about it. The interesting part is the author's description of the evolution of human beings -- from apes and cave people to the business people we are today. According to an article in Inc., the Darwin version of evolution has recently made an appearance in business books:
- Dealing with Darwin: How Great Companies Innovate at Every Phase of Their Evolution
- The Ape in the Corner Office: Understanding the Workplace Beast in All of Us
- Our Inner Ape: A Leading Primatologist Explains Why We Are Who We Are
- The Origin of Brands: How Product Evolution Creates Endless Possibilities for New Brands
