it was amazing
bookshelves: systems-and-or-evolutionary-thinkin

I enjoyed this book tremendously. The author covered a very large range of hot button issues and was clear about not over stepping what the scientific evidence is for various theories. It is a great introduction to so many topics in Evolutionary Psychology. Jesse Bering has a great sense of humor.

I was tickled to revisit the work of many evolutionists that I have worked with through my involvement in the Evolutionary Studies (EvoS) program at Binghamton University (evolution.binghamton.edu/evos/) and as managing editor of Evolution: This View of Life(www.thisviewoflife.com).

He covered work of two ETVOL editors work including Michael Blume (Religion editor) and Dominic Johnson (Politics editor). He writes about Gordon Gallup's work on semen (for a youtube interview on ETVOL of Gordon Gallup see http://www.thisviewoflife.com/index.p...)

He also references many people I have interacted with through EvoS including Anne Clark a participating EvoS faculty member at Binghamton University and Jaak Panksepp who will be speaking at the EvoS seminar at some point this fall.
