9780099415671: A Natural History of the Rich

It is hardly possible to open a newspaper these days without coming across a listing of the richest people in the UK, in the world, in the solar system...not to mention the endless profiling of Internet millionaires and the obscenely wealthy of all types - from Posh and Becks to Bill Gates. In the footsteps of David Attenborough, Richard Conniff sets out to try to understand the peculiar behaviours of this strange species, setting them in the context of the behaviour of other animals, from mice to flies to baboons.

From the Publisher:

A wonderfully witty and engaging investigation of the foibles and lifestyles of that most bizarre and fascinating of animal species - the very rich - presented in the context of animal behaviour and evolutionary psychology.

About the Author:

Richard Conniff is one of the most talented of the younger generation of American science and natural history writers. His previous books, on insects and invertebrates, have been published in the UK by Souvenir. This is his first book on humans.
