I read the book in a paperback edition. I found it funny and educational. Baker has summarized a lot of scientific research in a way that is accessible to non-scientists.

I'll never look at mucus the same again! Some rather taken-for-granted aspects of behavior and physiology (like cervical mucus) have new, deeper meaning after reading this book. For example, why are women so confusing to men? The author posits that being unpredictable gives women a sexual advantage over men in chosing who will father their children! Of course! Evolution selects for ditziness. While the author offers many obviously correct insights, not all of the author's hypotheses really hang. For example, he asserts that homosexuality does NOT result in decreased reproductive success - I'm not so sure I buy that agrument - Wilson's argument about altruism makes more sense. I certainly wouldn't call this pornography - it's written in a much too dispassionate and clinical style for that. The situations and actions do have that the ring of truth. He sometimes also drifts over into technical discussions that will be difficult to read and comprehend by a lay audience. All in all, a most disquieting and mentally stimulating book. Highly recommended.
