Summary
Our ancestors crossed deserts, mountains, and oceans-- feats of endurance that now seem impossible without modern technology. Can we hack our bodies and use the environment to stimulate our inner biology? Carney explores the true connection between the mind and the body and reveals the science that allows us to push past our perceived limitations
