Bill Sullivan – Pleased to Meet Me


Why are you attracted to a certain type? Why are you a morning person? Why do you vote the way you do? From a witty new voice in popular science comes a clever, life-changing look at what makes you you.

I cant believe I just said that. What possessed me to do that? Whats wrong with me?

Were constantly seeking answers to these fundamental human questions, and now, science has the answers. The foods we enjoy, the people we love, the emotions we feel, and the beliefs we hold can all be traced back to our DNA, germs, and environment. This witty, colloquial book is popular science at its best, describing in everyday language how genetics, epigenetics, microbiology, and psychology work together to influence our personality and actions.

Mixing cutting-edge research and relatable humor, Pleased to Meet Me is filled with fascinating insights that shine a light on who we really are – and how we might become our best selves.

As an enviro-centric moderate, I’ve been looking for material to give me some insight on tribal politics. How can two people observe the same topic/situation and see it so differently? This book gave me some perspective based on gene studies. I didn’t mind the pop/nerd humor, but I can see how it would annoy some readers/listeners [I’m an Audible book consumer].
