The Polished Savage

What it Means to be Human

A book by Colin Frayn

This is a book about the human species.

I wanted to build an understanding of the nature of what it means to be human, and by doing that, to lead the reader towards the answer to why we, as humans, do the things that we do. It covers evolutionary psychology, neuroscience and many other vital topics, all interwoven through the one common thread of the essence of humanity. It introduces the concept of internal visualisation, and explains why this is such a vital factor in elevating our species above the rest of the animal kingdom.

Most importantly, it explains you how you can actually take this knowledge and use it to great benefit in your life.
