Does civilization really mean progress? That’s the question that author Chris Ryan tackles in his new book.

Ryan co-authored the bestselling book Sex at Dawn back in 2010, and in his new work he argues that the way forward may be a look backward.

Ryan will be at Powell’s Tuesday evening at 7:30, diving deeper into the meaning of progress, and how in order to move forward, we need to look backward. 

KBOO’s Paul Roland sat down with Ryan to learn more about this new project.

An extended version of this interview can be heard tomorrow morning at 8 a.m. on Wednesday Talk Radio.
