Sex and the Evolution of Human Nature
The Red Queen, inspired by the Lewis Carroll character, explores why sex is humanity's best strategy against mutating internal threats. Matt Ridley explores various riddles of human nature, including why men propose and why beauty standards are maddening. The book also dives into the surprising fact that women are more likely to conceive a child through adultery.
