Reviews

"The arguments and counterarguments will most certainly generate a good deal of heat, but also, let's hope, . . . . even more light."-- (03/05/2009)
"Roughgarden's new theory is likely to end up an important extension to existing thought."--New Scientist (04/29/2009)
"Succeeds in re-opening issues long thought closed.. . . .(Challenging) what we thought we already know."-- (04/30/2009)
"Argues that. . . . sexual selection as a form of self-seeking improvement on the part of each beast is a myth."-- (05/11/2009)
