I couldn't finish it - which is very rare for me. I was often confused or unable to discern the point he was trying to make. His examples were not new to me, but he treated them as if they were entirely new and wonderful. ::Yawn:: I don't need to know why many species of anglerfish are so sexually dimorphous - I already know. (The male attaches himself to the female and shares her blood supply and basically acts as a little sperm producing appendage.)
