Great insight into evolutionary psychology,
This review is from: The Mating Mind: How Sexual Choice Shaped the Evolution of Human Nature: How Sexual Choice Shaped Human Nature (Paperback)
I am not a student/academic of psychology, biology, human nature or evolutionary psychology so I found this book a little boring at times and perhaps hard to read. But since I am fascinated by this topic, I found a lot of sections to be very intriguing and eye opening. I have read Selfish Gene and The Red Queen (both of which are referred to in this book) so I am a little familiar with this topic and find it quiet interesting. I would recommend this book to anyone interested in human nature and how it relates to sex and evolution of human mind. It is a little too deep for my liking so I wouldn't recommend it if you're just interested in topic of dating, seduction, sex or relationships. It goes way past this and into primal and hard wired aspects of human nature (that we are not conciously aware of) and explains why we do things we do in order to attract opposite sex, mate and reproduce.
