Reader recommendation: Catching Fire

Monitor readers share their favorite book picks.

I just finished Catching Fire: How Cooking Made Us Human by Richard Wrangham. This totally amazing book develops the well supported idea that cooking and eating cooked food (we are the only animal who does), forms the basis for development of the human brain and the basis for human society. Fascinating read!
