From reading some of the other reviews, I thought that this book was going to be great cover to cover. While it did contain some good thought provoking stuff, I found that it became repetitive and took some license with the statistics that it was using (where it bothered to use them) to prop up their position. While I feel there is good logic to much of what is put forward in this book, I think the approach is a little too simplistic and not sufficiently supported.

I absolutely loved every part of this book. I liked is so much I listened to it twice, back to back. I had never heard of Evolutionary Psychology before, but everything it professed to be true or speculated upon really rang true for me. This is a fascinating topic, whether you buy into all of it, some of it, or none of it. It just makes so much sense to me. It is written in a light-hearted manner and was an easy listen that frequently elicited smiles from me, as I shook my head and said, "Yes!".
The format involves the author stating a question about human nature and answering the question according to the new science of Evolutionary Psychology. In very simple terms, this science posits that human culture or human nature is the same for all people worldwide. It evolved thousands of years ago and our prime directive is to reproduce ourselves. This influences and directs every aspect of male and female behavior. It so clearly explains how the differences between the sexes evolved and what drives men and women.
At the end of the book, the author presents questions that are not yet answered by the new science and some possible explanations that have been put forth.
I highly recommend this book. It is fairly short, expertly narrated, and guaranteed to make you smile!
