Not real Science. Sorry. This thing reminds me of how darwinism was used to justify the holocaust and imperialism.

Review: The Red Queen: Sex and the Evolution of Human Nature

User Review  - Sheng Peng - Goodreads

By reading this book, you realize how rare books like The Selfish Gene are, which logically presents scientific findings in an accessible and fun way. Alas, this book lacks the logical development and the fun. Studies are cited plenty, but rather haphazardly. Read full review

Review: The Red Queen: Sex and the Evolution of Human Nature

User Review  - Shane Moore - Goodreads

Painfully dry and academic, while clearly written from an opinionated perspective. Maybe it is just that the evolutionary development of reproductive methods doesn't interest me as much as that of morality, but I found this book dull. Read full review

User Review  - Cayenne Ross - Goodreads

Read "Same Difference" by Rosalind C. Barnett. Soo stereotypical. Too many assumptions and generalizations. Evidence seems irrelevant to the argument made, lacking, incorrect or exaggerated. It feels ... Read full review

Review: The Red Queen: Sex and the Evolution of Human Nature

User Review  - Mckinley - Goodreads

Since this is a science book it is troubling that this doesn't follow the scientific method. Frequently topics are not developed logically leading to confusing and odd sentences. Some interesting propositions -- read for a lark. Read full review

Review: The Red Queen: Sex and the Evolution of Human Nature

User Review  - Dariosk - Goodreads

The blurb sounds interesting, the book is not. It is concerned with why do we reproduce having sex... really? Sounds like pure speculation to me, and not particularly useful or engaging. Read full review

I had to buy this book for my BIOL 112 class... I didn't like it at all. It was really hard to keep a sense of sanity while reading this book because it goes COMPLETELY against my religion. And it basically says religion is pointless. Read full review

Review: The Red Queen: Sex and the Evolution of Human Nature

User Review  - Michael - Goodreads

Unnecessary book that just forever states the obvious, written by someone without very much credibility and it seems to show. Essentially encapsulates in 350 pages what one could do alone in 20 minutes of just thinking. Read full review
