Getting Back to My Roots as a Writer & Anthroplogist 

In 2012 I terminated my consulting business designing online continuing medical education for doctors and began the final phase of of my professional life: writing the books that I have hungered to write during the past 30 years. 

Combining the study of primate social behavior with the entire spectrum of known human societies and cultures reveals a picture of human nature that has unique power in analyzing human behavior. It is from this point of view that I have embarked upon my next great adventure as an anthropologist and writer.
