Straw Dogs challenges all our assumptions about what it is to be human, and convincingly shows that most of them are delusions. Who are we, and why are we here? John Gray’s answers will shock most of us deeply. This is the most exhilarating book I have read since Richard Dawkins’ The Selfish Gene.

A more optimistic view is given in On Humanism by Richard Norman.
