will be revisiting over and over again'

of this mess ... I can't recommend it highly enough'

'Thought provoking and enlightening - you'll be discussing The Status Game everywhere you go' Sara Pascoe

humans yearn for, accrue, and respond to status - and how we wither
from a lack of it ... It is a vital exploration of the
evolutionarily wired game that underpins so much of our culture and

world shaped by social media, this book confirms Will Storr's own
status as a master storyteller'

the depth and breadth of the research, the strength of the

appropriately - establish Will Storr as the finest science writer
being published today'
