About the Author
Look Inside. Aug 06, ISBN Why do you vote the way you do? From a witty new voice in popular science comes a clever, life-changing look at what makes you you. The foods we enjoy, the people we love, the emotions we feel, and the beliefs we hold can all be traced back to our DNA, germs, and environment. This witty, colloquial book is popular science at its best, describing in everyday language how genetics, epigenetics, microbiology, and psychology work together to influence our personality and actions. Mixing cutting-edge research and relatable humor, Pleased to Meet Me is filled with fascinating insights that shine a light on who we really are—and how we might become our best selves.
So many traits, preferences, and phy sical qualities seem inherent, unable to be altered — like his strong distaste for broccoli — but why? He moves through sections devoted to tastes, addictions, moods, fears, and attractions, among many others. One of the most fascinating things I learned was how quickly certain factors can be passed on. A single generation! He offers some thoughtful ideas and considerations to close each section that take some of the sting out and suggest possibilities for areas we can control.
This other Jesse Hughey and I had no mutual Facebook acquaintances among our collective 1, friends, and I knew of no family members who lived in his home state of Alaska or his current city, Seattle, or anywhere in the Pacific Northwest. I lived in Dallas and was about a decade older—or a lifetime older, if I accounted for the vitality that parenting has sapped from me over the past 21 years. From how we each looked in photographs, nobody would peg us for relatives. Ours was an uncommon enough name that he was the only other one I found on MySpace when I signed up. Like me, he wrote songs and played guitar, but he also sang, whereas I was content to let others handle vocals, and it was obvious he was a more serious aspiring rock star. After years of not acknowledging him, I reached out to the Seattle Jesse in January, at a time when names were on my mind. My wife and I were trying to have a child, and every conversation about it included a discussion about names.
