About the Author:

Desmond Morris is a prolific author as well as the presenter of numerous television programmes. He wrote the international bestseller, 'The Naked Ape' and has used his skills as a zoologist and 'Manwatcher' in titles such as 'Bodywatching', 'Babywatching', 'Body Talk', 'The Human Zoo' and 'The Soccer Tribe'.

Excerpt. Reprinted by permission. All rights reserved.:

From Foreword: In writing this book my main interest has been to record an endlessly fascinating human pursuit, as it survives at the end of the 20th century. I cannot help wondering whether, if someone were to read this book 100 years from now, they would be surprised at how primitive we were in our beliefs, or whether they would be saying, yes, we still do all that, even now. It is impossible to predict whether humanity will leave behind all the minor superstitions we follow today, or whether a whole new wave of magical thinking will have erupted throughout human society.
