Book Description: Penguin Books Ltd, United Kingdom, 1994. Paperback. Book Condition: New. 198 x 129 mm. Brand New Book. Sex is as fascinating to scientists as it is to the rest of us. A vast pool of knowledge, therefore, has been gleaned from research into the nature of sex, from the contentious problem of why the wasteful reproductive process exists at all, to how individuals choose their mates and what traits they find attractive. This fascinating book explores those findings, and their implications for the sexual behavior of our own species.

The book was shortlisted for the 1994 Rhone-Poulenc Prize for Science Books. Animals and plants evolved sex to fend off parasitic infection. Now look where it has got us. Men want BMWs, power and money in order to pair-bond with women who are blonde, youthful and narrow-waisted.a brilliant examination of the scientific debates on the hows and whys of sex and evolution - Independent .
