Product description

Review

"The writing is engaging, the material covered is appropriate, and really it is the best non-technical summary I have read of the relevant issues." -- Todd K. Shackelford, Ph.D.Professor of PsychologyTodd K. Shackelford, Ph.D.Professor of PsychologyTo

"Turns everything you thought you knew about sex on its head. A bold and unashamed assessment of the plentiful scientific data that illuminate the true origins and nature of human sexuality. Funny, engaging, and superbly written..." -- Julie Holland, M.D., author of Weekends at Bellevue

"A wonderfully provocative and well-written book which completely re-evaluates human sexual behaviour and gets to the root of many of our social and psychological ills."--Steve Taylor, author of The Fall and Waking From Sleep

"You clearly have an exciting book on your hands, whether people agree with it or not: these are issues that will need debating over and over before we will arrive at a resolution."--Frans de Waal, author of The Age of Empathy

"This paradigm-shifting book is a thoroughly original discussion of the origins and nature of human sexuality... These authors have a gift for making complex material reader-friendly, filling each chapter with humor and passion as well as dozens of revolutionary insights."--Stanley Krippner, Ph.D.

"Sex At Dawn is a provocative and engaging synthesis... that has the added benefit of being a joy to read.... A book sure to generate discussion, and one likely to produce more than a few difficult conversations with family marriage counselors."--Eric Michael Johnson, Seed Magazine

"One of the most original books I've read in years, Sex at Dawn manages to be both enormously erudite and wildly entertaining--even, frequently, hilarious. . . . A must-read for anyone interested in where our sexual impulses come from."--Tony Perrottet, author of Napoleon's Privates

"Christopher Ryan and Cacilda Jetha have written the essential corrective to the evolutionary psychology literature..."--Stanton Peele, Ph.D.

"Sex At Dawn challenges conventional wisdom about sex in a big way... This is a provocative, entertaining, and pioneering book. I learned a lot from it and recommend it highly."--Andrew Weil, M.D., author of Healthy Aging

"Funny, witty, and light ... Sex at Dawn is a scandal in the best sense, one that will have you reading the best parts aloud and reassessing your ideas about humanity's basic urges well after the book is done."--Newsweek
