We all know people who make our lives more difficult—colleagues, bosses, or friends who sabotage our work, care only about themselves or generally bring us down. Often, our own behavior is just as baffling; we react to things in inappropriate or self-defeating ways.
The key to the surprising behavior of ourselves and others is: human nature.
Drawing on the past hundred years of literature in psychology, science, and philosophy this book is the definitive guide to human nature. Using detailed biographical stories of famous people throughout history, The Laws of Human Nature illustrates the 18 fundamental laws that affect why people behave the way they do.
Armed with this knowledge, you can become a calmer and more strategic observer of other people, able to interpret their behavior and judge their character. The book shows you how to out-think toxic people; how to motivate and influence others; and how to alter your own negative behavior patterns.
