I wish more textbooks were like this. The only one that really comes to mind is Animal Social Behavior by Wittenberger. Like that one, this book impresses by the quality of the arguments. He never just comes up with 'this is the way it is, so learn it'. He often presents an hypothesis, then lists predictions that can be made from that hypothesis and suitable tests, and then evidence to support or disprove it. You learn something about the scientific method as well as the subject matter.
I admit I dismissed evolutionary psychology for a long time, arguing that we are no longer subject to darwinian evolution, but are subject to rapid cultural evolution. However, this book shows exactly why I was wrong, and how much we can learn from the sort of interesting questions that an evolutionary perspective inspires.
A nice antidote to the influence of behaviourism, which still seems to be present in sociology and feminist ideology. Just so long as we remember that not all behaviour is an adaptation.

Excellent, thorough and highly recommended introduction covering the fundamentals in rich detail. Based on excellent principles and covering all the main areas of human social cognition and behaviour and found it rewarding to read. David Buss is clear and turns complex ideas, knowledge, research and findings in evo psyche into an accessible book for anyone approaching this perspective.

I do zoology, my fiends do psychology, this book manages to almagamate the two with unsurpassed ease. At times is enjoyable as well as interesting and his use of references is both accurate and up to date.
Omly drawback may be the price fro some of us poverty stricken students
