This review is from: The Mating Mind: How Sexual Choice Shaped the Evolution of Human Nature: How Sexual Choice Shaped Human Nature (Paperback)
I cannot do justice in praising this book. It is simply filled with the most ingenious explanations of human thought and behavior compared to anything I have ever read before. It is simply amazing, inspiring, shocking, surprising and so deeply interesting that I demand that you read it at least twice. It's too important to miss and if you haven't even read Darwin yet then you have some work to do my friend. Enrich your mind with these texts before it's too late.
