From the New York Times bestselling author of Upheavala fun and wide-ranging exploration of why human sexuality is so different from other animals', and how it made us who we are.
To us humans, the sex lives of animals seem weird.
But it's our own sex lives that are truly bizarre. We are the only social species to insist on carrying out sex privately. Stranger yet, we have sex at any time, even during periods of infertility, such as pregnancy or post-menopause. A human female doesn't know her precise time of fertility and certainly doesn't advertise it to human males by the striking color changes, smells, and sounds used by other female mammals. Why do we differ so radically in these and other important aspects of our sexuality from our closest ancestor, the apes?
Why does the human female, virtually alone among mammals, go through menopause? Why does the human male stand out as one of the few mammals to stay with the female he impregnates, to help raise the children that he sired? Why is the human penis so unnecessarily large? There is no one better qualified than Jared Diamond to explain the evolutionary forces that operated on our ancestors to make us so different sexually.

Verified Purchase. I've read most of Diamond's books. He is accessible, widely read, and coherent. All his books are written as arguments: he presents the problem, a point of view or hypothesis, analyses the evidence for alternative hypotheses, dismisses the alt hypotheses, and reevaluates the evidence to prove his point.
A scientific approach to popular science writing. Many science writers just throw things at you: words, data, quotes from other scientists and pop culture -- as if you're sitting in a jury. He explores the reasons, or phenomena, that set us apart from most other animals inc. He investigates the evolutionary origins of these phenomena, and the effects they have today: the ultimate causes and the proximate causes and effects. An engrossing read. Keeps you engaged. Different perspective. Its not about positions of sex. Very different and funny.
Pricy for the cheap materials used! Not happy! Get a soft copy rather if you want to enjoy Jared Diamonds work. I am satisfied. Thank you.General sex fun
