Over the past year I have enjoyed a bunch of books. Here are the top ten in a non-hierarchical list. After I made the last I remembered how much I loved The Secret of Our Success: How Culture Is Driving Human Evolution, Domesticating Our Species, and Making Us Smarter by Jospeh Henrich, so think of it as honorably (almost) forgotten. While I am only half-way through the book currently, I am confident that Michael Kerr’s Bowen Theory’s Secrets: Revealing the Hidden Life of Families would be on the list if I waited until next week to write this.
