Popular science books on evolutionary psychology, especially those by Pinker, are great for convincing lay people of the value of evolutionary psychology. However, if you want to really understand EP, rather than merely be convinced one should not to oppose it, Workman and Reader's text is the introduction you need. The book is dense with fascinating, well referenced information, presented in a style accessible to anyone with even the most superficial knowledge of psychology and biology. ( )
