'Richard Manning is an award-winning environmental author and journalist whose books include Against The Grain: How Agriculture Has Hijacked Civilization.
'Manning has just co-authored Go Wild: Free Your Body And Mind From The Afflictions Of Civilization with John J. Ratey, an associate clinical professor of psychiatry at Harvard Medical School.
'The book asserts that we should draw on our hunter-gatherer past to live more closely to our genetic inheritance.'
Manning: "Agriculture is really the dominant system of 8,000 years, and it's more than a way of growing food. It's a way of domesticating humans and organising humans. It is 'the' system." (The Enternities podcast).
