The Red Queen : sex and the evolution of human nature

By Matt Ridley

Matt Ridley demonstrates why sex is humanity's best strategy for outwitting its constantly mutating internal predators. The Red Queen answers dozens of other riddles of human nature and culture -- including why men propose marriage, the method behind our maddening notions of beauty, and the disquieting fact that a woman is more likely to conceive a child by an adulterous lover than by her husband. Brilliantly written, The Red Queen offers an extraordinary new way of interpreting the human condition and how it has evolved.

    The intention was good. fortunately I have red both the Red Queen and the rational Optimist.Betwixt the intention and the delivery lies the shadow.Matt Ridley deserved a better location and a larger audience.
