5.0 out of 5 stars A zoological portrait of an endangered species, 20 Dec. 2009
This review is from: The Naked Man: A study of the male body (Paperback)
In a scientific and dryer style than in `The Naked Ape', Desmond Morris analyzes technically, historically, psychologically, theatrically or psychiatrically all parts of the human body as well as their transformation in the evolution of mankind.

In the process we learn a lot of things.
To sharpen one's appetite, one can find here the answers on the following questions: what part of the male body has the most sex appeal and why? What is a Prince Albert? Why have men testicles outside the abdomen (not for reasons of temperature)? What is a `testical chair'? What's the appeal of long legs? Why are gay men so valuable? What is the real meaning of the term `football'? What is the origin of the term `Adam's Apple'? What is Asphyxiophilia? Why place people their hands over their mouth when they yawn (not out of politeness)? Why are our feet the most honest parts of the whole human body? Why is the ring finger called the `digitus medicus'? How functions the nose as an air-conditioner? What is the strength of a human hair?

This book is a must read for all men and women.
