 "Pleased to Meet Me:  Genes, Germs, and the Curious Forces That Make Us Who We Are"
Why do you dislike certain foods? Why do you vote the way you do? Why do people overeat? Why do some get addicted to drugs or suffer from depression? Based on the international bestseller, “Pleased to Meet Me,” (National Geographic Books), this talk will describe how genes work together with your environment and microbes to shape your personality and behavior. Mixing cutting-edge research with pop culture and humor, Pleased to Meet Me is filled with fascinating insights that shine a light on who we really are--and how we might become our best selves. Join us for a life-changing look at what makes you…you.
