About the Book

Why do we humans do such stupid things when we know better? This book blames it on the Human Stupidity Imbalance defective gene which has been with us since Adam and Eve. It is the best way to explain why even the brightest people do dumb things. The areas covered in the book are business, consumers, crime, education, government, heads of state, health, minorities and war. Many examples are drawn from American and British history, but others are from a wide variety of other nations. The final chapter offers antidotes that will help the individual keep the gene dormant.
