Reviews

"Small joins ... such writers as Robert Ardrey, Desmond Morris, and Lionel Tiger who have sought to make evolutionary biology the foundation sexual behavior ... a refreshing rejoinder to the Darwinian boys' club." --San Francisco Chronicle

"An anthropologist's thorough, lucid, nontechnical descriptions of why we mate the way we do." --Playboy

"A personal feminist take on the mating game. [Small] adopts an intimate style [and] succeeds in conveying a flavor of what ... scientific research is all about." --Scientific American

"Lays out the fundamental wiring diagrams of human sexuality ... essential knowledge." --Bill McKibben
