"In this book, Alan S. Miller and Satoshi Kanazawa present the latest research from the field of evolutionary psychology to take on some of the most popular and controversial topics of modern life - in order to shed light on why we do the things we do." "Every time we fall in love, fight with our spouse, enjoy watching a favorite TV show, or feel scared walking alone at night, we are in part behaving as a human animal with its own unique evolved nature - a nature that effectively stopped evolving 10,000 years ago. Contrary to conventional wisdom, our brains and bodies are hardwired to carry out an evolutionary mission - a mission that determines much of what we do, from life plans to everyday decisions." "With an accessible tone and a healthy disregard for political correctness, this book popularizes the latest research in a cutting-edge field of study - one that turns much of what we thought we knew about human nature upside down."--BOOK JACKET.
