TVOL is pleased to announce a new Book of the Month Club for in-depth discussion of the many wonderful books that have been written on “anything and everything” from an evolutionary perspective.

Every month will begin with a review of the featured book on TVOL. Discussion will take place on the TVOL1000 Facebook page and will be moderated by an expert in the area. The discussion will culminate in a Webinar with the book’s author at the end of the month.

The club will be restricted to members of the TVOL1000. Go here to learn more about the benefits of joining this group, which actively promotes the evolutionary worldview represented by “this view of life”.

The featured book for the month of February is Naturally Selected: The Evolutionary Science of Leadership by Mark van Vugt. Our moderator will be TVOL1000 member Max Beilby, who also wrote the review of Mark’s book on TVOL. Max is highly qualified to moderate the discussion, as you’ll see if you check out his Darwinian Business blog.

The March pick will be Peter Turchin’s Ultrasociety, a book highly relevant to today’s highly volatile political environment.

The Book of the Month Club will be a great way to delve deeply into a given topic area, far more than reading a book on one’s own. We are pleased to make the opportunity available to TVOL1000 members.
