68. Will Storr: Why everything we do is a status game

Will Storr has been gaining a reputation as one of the foremost non-fiction writers in the UK over the past few years, starting with his exploration of people with extreme beliefs in his book Heretics.

His phenomenal follow-up Selfie about how the West became so self-obsessed and individualistic put him in the big leagues of journalistic writers. He then wrote the Science of Storytelling, which is supposed to be brilliant, but I’ve not had the chance to read yet – and today we’re here to talk about his latest book – The Status Game.
