We all play games. The nature of these games depends on both the situation and on who we meet. This book is about the games we play: those patterns of behaviour that reveal hidden feelings and emotions. It shows the underlying motivations behind our relationships and gives you the keys to unlock the psychology of others - and yourself.
From acclaimed tech writer Clive Thompson, a brilliant and immersive study of one the most powerful tribes in the world today, computer programmers - where they come from, how they think, what makes for greatness in their world, and what should give us pause.
The author describes himself as a reluctant traveller, but even when he stays safely at home he can't contain his curiosity about the world around him. This title is about his quest to understand everything that has happened from the Big Bang to the rise of civilization - how we got from there, being nothing at all, to here, being us.
