This is yet another piece of pop evolutionary psychology in the "Mars and Venus" tradition - the kind of book that tries to explain men's leaving their socks on the floor in terms of territorial displays. In other words, like most books in this field, it makes enjoyable reading but should be taken with a pinch of salt. Intellectually, Quirk is not in the same league as Steven Pinker, but he writes well, and you're guaranteed a good laugh every few pages. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0762426802, Hardcover)

Finally, the answer to why, when it comes to romance, women are coy and men are just clueless--explained from the micro standpoint. Who would have guessed that all of our sexual and social behavior, and even our physical appearance, could be attributed to what our tiny unseen reproductive cells are doing? But that's Quirk's thesis in this highly entertaining book from an Average Guy that's a fun read full of a-ha! moments for scientists and civilians alike. Learn facts about cheating you'll never see on "Jerry Springer," like how unfaithful females actually change the biology of their mates. Discover why most sperm couldn't care less if they never saw an egg, what makes men yell "woo!" in a feminine falsetto--very similar to the mating cry of the Siamang gibbon--and, most important, the surprising answer on what to wear to attract that alpha mate.
