An irreverent and controversial examination of why some nations succeed that will overturn all received wisdom
With an abundance of data and evidence, Move UP explores the societal and biological factors that determine whether cultures are able to ascend socially, economically, and intellectually. This provocative, ambitious, and entertaining book devises a formula that will allow countries and individuals to assess their own potential for upward mobility. Drawing on science and statistics as much as on human instinct and emotion, Move UP reconsiders the modern world with a motion to improving it.

"An entertaining and important counterweight to the ideology and cynicism that surrounds discussions of world problems today." —Steven Pinker, author, How the Mind Works
"Not since The Naked Ape have I seen a book that so gleefully revels in tweaking the nose of conventional sensitivities. Whether you love it or hate it, this quirkily perceptive—or insouciantly provocative—book will enliven dinner party conversations, and will delight and infuriate in equal measure." —Richard Dawkins, author, The God Delusion
"Many have tried to address small pieces of this great puzzle, but Rapaille and Roemer are the first to attempt a comprehensive answer to this eternal question. Because the stakes are so high, their work deserves serious study and attention. The destiny of nations may depend on ideas like theirs." —Michio Kaku, author, Physics of the Future
"Move UP is a splendid book, totally engaging from start to finish. It showcases the human drive to strive for betterment within a complex matrix of our biology and culture. It challenges the reader to think about fresh ideas about ways to ascend, as well as highlighting the impediments that must be overcome to progress toward improvement." —David M. Buss, author, The Murderer Next Door
