The Price of Altruism: George Price and the Search for the Origins of Kindness Harman, O. W. W. Norton & Company; 1 edition (June 7, 2010)

This was a good read indeed. I stumbled upon this book in my local library on the ‘new non-fiction’ shelf. After I read the blurbs and dust jacket flaps I went for it. Awesome story. I had never heard of George Price, but his story is one that all people that are curious about altruism and its evolution in mankind should check out this book. Anyone who has read The Moral Landscape will be interested in some of the science of morality and altruism covered in this book.
