New book out

Aretae (who sadly doesn't blog very often anymore) has a new book out:
As a deep evolutionist — Dawkins/Dennett style extended phenotype, it’s pretty clear that the human monkey (remember monkeybrains) is built to function in a ceremonial fashion.   However, the modern rationalist/managerialist tradition has left that pattern behind, and asks us to do solo work and go to worthless meetings instead.
Our book addresses the question of how to bring Ceremony BACK into the workplace, and our lives in general, where it belongs.
He's one of the smartest guys around.  This sounds like some useful reading for making organizations work better.

Hey Borepatch;

I pulled your blogpost off Old NFO's blog. I did a post and it was linked to your blog back in 2011. Has anything ever changed on that situation? I know this is a blast from the past.
