Product description


"It was one of the most outrageous, improbable evolutionary ideas
ever proposed... now the idea... is becoming respectable." -- 'The Observer'

"Part feminist polemic, part evolutionary bombshell." -- 'The Guardian'

"She is more scientific than Genesis, more up to date than
Darwin... and she writes better than Desmond Morris."
-- 'Sunday Telegraph'


A title which completes a sequence of works on the aquatic ape theory of evolution, looking at evolution from the child's viewpoint, from the development of the foetus and the experience of birth to child rearing and development and the role of parents.
