Announcing a new Meetup for San Antonio Books & Mountain Bikes Meetup!

What: Book: Sex on Six Legs
When: Friday, November 4,[masked]:00 PM

Where: Paul's Pizza Roma and Chinese Express
5137 Fredericksburg Road
San Antonio, TX 78229

The book is called "Sex on Six Legs: Lessons on Life, Love, and Language from the Insect World "  Everybody loves insects so this should be a good read.  Anyway they serve pizza and chinese food at this place so that is also good.  Lets meet and talk.  Have you ever looked into the lovely eyes of a termite.  They are cute so don't think insects (and their sex lives) are disgusting and will affect your appetite.  Eat heartily.  I'm sure they serve beer as well for those of you who are into that. Creepy crawlies.

Product Description:

 

Insects have inspired fear, fascination, and enlightenment for centuries. They are capable of incredibly complex behavior, even with brains often the size of a poppy seed. How do they accomplish feats that look like human activity— personality, language, childcare—with completely different pathways from our own? What is going on inside the mind of those ants that march like boot-camp graduates across your kitchen floor? How does the lead ant know exactly where to take her colony, to that one bread crumb that your nightly sweep missed? Can insects be taught new skills as easily as your new puppy? 

Sex on Six Legs is a startling and exciting book that provides answers to these questions and many more. With the humor of Olivia Judson’s Dr. Tatiana’s Sex Advice to All Creation, Zuk not only examines the bedroom lives of creepy crawlies but also calls into question some of our own longheld assumptions about learning, the nature of personality, and what our own large brains might be for.
