Women After All: Sex, Evolution, and the End of Male Supremacy by Melvin Konner
My rating: 2 of 5 stars
This book was okay, but I've read better (particularly Cordelia Fine's Delusions of Gender). The author is at his best when discussing various animal mating strategies, and not so good when trying to apply this to the human species. I think there's an interesting question at the heart of this book: now that modern life is emphasizing technology instead of brute physical strength, which has propelled male dominance over the centuries, how will society and relations between the genders change? That would be an intriguing book, I think, but it isn't this book.
