People Like Us
What is it that makes us human? There are more than seven billion of us on the planet and we come in all different shapes and sizes, are born in different cultures and to different parents, but fundamentally we are the same.
People Like Us provides a tongue-in-cheek investigation of the human race that might serve as a guide to earthlings for an imaginary alien visiting our planet for the first time. Amusing and entertaining, it documents the things we do; the things that make us human.
This book is the culmination of more than 25 years of human observation. An inveterate people watcher and devotee of Honoré Balzac, Sasha Gusov's career has taken him to over 40 countries where he has devoted his spare time to casting his keen and playful eye on the quirks that make us human.
