A great read. Even if you aren't one who typically reads science-y books, this will not disappoint you. (I picked it up out of curiosity off the library shelf while shelving books) It's set up like a question and answer book, but for adults, with questions like "why do men prefer blonde bombshells? and why do women want to be them?" or "why are women more religious than men?" a very nice format in my opinion; you don't have to read it beginning to end, instead it works for a casual read here and there with whatever topic strikes your fancy. Although each answer does not have the support to be undeniably true, each makes sense and explains much about human nature. Very provacative, too. Definitely stimulates the mind and makes you think, and realize that many of our actions and reactions are based on natural and sexual selection; humans are animals, too, despite what we want to believe.
