    The best on sex there is ...

    Jared Diamond's 'Why is sex fun' is one of the most enlightening and delightful scientific assay I have read on human sexuality. I strongly recommand this book to anyone interested in understanding human sexual behavior from an evolution perspective.

    A interesting subject tackled in an interesting way.

    Jared Diamond has quickly become one of my favorite non-fiction writers. His books, Collapse and Guns, Germs, and Steel, captivated my attention. If you have read those then you will enjoy Why is Sex Fun. Diamond explains the evolution of human sexuality in the same authoritative and entertaining style that is the hallmark of his previous works.

    The book tackles myths and mysteries, like why do men have nipples and why do women go through menopause, in an informative and thought provoking way. Diamond's attention to detail in research shines through in this book as in so many of his other offerings.

    I would recommend this book for readers who are curious about their world, why we are here, and how we got to be the way we are. Sometimes he raises more questions than he answers but he does give readers an opportunity for expanded research.

    Jared Diamond is the smartest person in the world

    This is an excellent book that answers many imporant questions such as: Why are vast majority of single parent households headed by women? It uses biology and anatomy to explain the behavior of humans and many other species. Small book but with a lot of good information.
