The Ten Types of Human

Dexter Dias

This book will introduce you to ten people. In a way, you already know them. Only you don’t – not really. In a sense, they are you. Only they’re not entirely. They inform and shape the most important decisions in your life. But you’re almost certainly unaware of their intervention. They are the Ten Types of Human. Who are they? What are they for? How did they get into your head?

We have within us the ability to perform acts of great kindness, and great evil. We would like to think that there are some things that we would always do, and some things that we would never do. But how can we know?

The answers lie with the Ten Types of Human: the people we become when we are faced with the most difficult decisions. But who are they? Where are they from? And how did they get into your head?

The Ten Types of Human is a pioneering examination of human nature. It explores how our minds work, and examines what forces come into play when we are placed in extreme situations. It begins in a courtroom, and journeys across four continents in search of answers.

Mixing cutting-edge neuroscience, social psychology and visceral true stories, The Ten Types of Human is at once a handbook, a provocation and a roadmap. It is a book to inspire us, and to help us find new ways to be free.
