Gave this book two stars because at least it was an easy ready pretty well translated and had some amusing facts in the first 60 70 pages about evolutionary psychiatry that I enjoyed Pro s very easy and quick to read Amusing on a long train ride or flightCon s 1 opinions and stereotypes peddled as fact at some point they even urged readers to look beyond cultural stereotypes but then spent the remaining 100 pages generalizing everything into very simplistic stereotypes that had the depth of a wikipedia article 2 The book completely doesn t answer it s thesis of why cultures move up They create an index, which takes 100 pages to define and is largely supported by the above mentioned anecdotes about various cultures Meanwhile, in the last 15 pages of the book we discover that 50% of this index is qualitative i.e., opinion That means that at best it s an auto regressive function and at worse just mere nonsense Basically their index says Switzerland allows individuals to move up because the country has a culture that allows people to move up great insight. I first chanced Move Up in one of Melbourne s many bookstores The name C Rapaille was very familiar and I remembered reading The Culture Code An Ingenious Way to Understand Why People Around the World Live and Buy as They Do so many years ago during an employment with a marketing start up I bought a copy and set to reading it And what I can basically say is that Move Up is essentially a loose follow up to Rapaille s previous book, Culture Code on a economic political perspective.The book basically runs on uncovering why some cultures progress faster than others Rapaille s studies delve into the disjointed relationship between economics and the human biological drives If at this point, things are starting to sound Freudian, it s because it is Move Up s main argument is that a lot of existing tensions in nations economics, civil rights, etc can find its roots in an unaddressed culture characteristics often ignored in the pursuit for higher GDPs At the end of the book, Rapaille makes a case for a Happiness Index and provides charts so you can see where your country ranks Mine surprisingly, was in the middle acceptable range But it could be outdated data.Takeaways from Move Up 1 People move from a culture that s moving down to emigrate to one that s moving up Basically, one that can meet their cultural and economic needs.2 There is a strong relationship between culture and biology The danger arises when cultures crystallize temporary solutions, harden cultural norms and refuse to evolve with current contexts.3 We could learn a lot about a nation s culture through how they historically engage in war and conquering territories communities.4 A culture that moves up is one that identifies the reptilian pleasures and incorporates it into aspects such as development, food, sex, culture, etc.5 When cultures do change, it occurs via very powerful imprints Eg Formation of European Union after World War 2.6 There is a difference between safety and security Safety relates to the female internal environment and security relates to the male external environment.7 There is much to be said for property rights, so that the population can free up its inventive potential and puts resource at work Basically, enhance competition.8 People vote with their feet Humans are inclined to migrate move to where they believe they can be successful Even if the risks are high.At times, Move Up can read like a little bit of too common sense, or even Freudian Nothing new is being mentioned in the book, but it does serve as an interesting lens as to how to think about how our basic biological drives fit into the larger colder eye of economics An interesting read, but not a breakthrough that same way Culture Code was. No meaningful insight all clich s. Keep Moving This book promises to explain why some cultures are successful than others, arguably one of the central questions of economics Why is it that sooner nations are richer, safer, freer, etc Definitely one of the big questions and any meaningful answer is going to be very complex So I started the book with very minimal expectations.Turns out the book doesn t answer much of it Or even attempt to flesh out a defensible thesis or argument of any sort Almost the whole book is full of generalities and questionable statements phrased as assertions to be taken as fact Lots of stereotypes are peddled and cause is not separated from consequence The only good ideas in the book I found were those that predate it like the old brain, new brain idea from The Happiness Hypothesis.Wholly unscientific and cursory look at the questions or strives to answer The book is a disaster. At first, i was dubious about the sense with which Dr Dawkins praised the book Now i m certain he didn t mean to compliment it While the authors make clear several times that this book is not a rigorous academic or scientific research, they attempt to link their thesis with previous works from C.G Jung, Freud, Maslow and Dr Rapaille himself among others in order to convey it some credibility In the end the superficial mix of several indicators along with simplistic formulas, turn their new metric the R 2 index into nothing but an intellectual amusement All in all, despite sokme interesting ideas presented here and there, the book lacks of relevant and meaningful content, specially considering the anticipation with which it was announced.
