From the Publisher
“In this thoughtful and provocative book, Thiessen, an evolutionary psychologist, presents an unblinking view of how the forces of evolution shaped human behavior and constrain our future… This book is filled with ideas.
—C. R. Timmons, Choice
“With literary flair and philosophical insight Thiessen paints a disturbing picture of human evolution—a provocative and controversial view of the deep-rooted origins of human behavior.”
—Joseph Lopreato, University of Texas at Austin
“Bittersweet Destiny succeeds as a scholarly book that simultaneously entertains and informs. It’s a ‘must read’ for anyone interested in the fascinating new discipline of viewing humans through the lens of evolutionary theory, and more generally for anyone interested in the place of humans in the grand scheme of life.”
—David M. Buss, author, The Evolution of Desire: Strategies of Human Mating
