Product description

Review

“Aarathi Prasad has travelled far into the mysterious land of human and animal conception and come back with extraordinary stories of chimaeras and parthenogens, of cannibal sharks in the womb, of pseudosperm and the prospect of birth without pregnancy. A fascinating book.”
Matt Ridley, bestselling author of The Red Queen

“It’s game over for the testicle; the reign of bollocks is at an end. Prasad charts the high road to total male redundancy. In the future, girls will do it for themselves, boys – those who are left – will just be toys. Cheer or weep, but read this book.”
Armand Marie Leroi, author of Mutants

“Think of her as the female equivalent of Brian Cox making science accessible for the masses ... Entertaining and provocative, this promises to change the way you think about sex.”
Stylist
