Why Beautiful People Have More Daughters: From Dating, Shopping, and Praying to Going to War and Becoming a Billionaire-- Two Evolutionary Psychologists Explain Why We Do What We Do by Alan S. Miller
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
A layman's introduction to the field of evolutionary psychology, simple and approachable at the start, yet ultimately shallow and repetitive. Capsule summary: our decisions are influenced by our desire to propagate our genes. Several compelling arguments, but I ended up wishing there was more to it. Sets up the Standard Social Science Model as a straw man far too often.
