James Donaldson’s Book Review – Natural Selections: Selfish Altruists, Honest Liars, and Other Realities of Evolution by David P. Barash

natural-selectionsI thought this book was a humorous look at human behavior, evolution, the roles that genes play in our everyday activities. It was a “light enough” book, where I didn’t have to look up every other scientific words to try to understand what the meaning was. But, at the same time, and had good substance and a lot of good references to everyday contemporary studies and writings that have been around for a while.

I don’t know if I learned much new from this book, but it does give you a greater understanding of human behavior, and why we do the things we do.

A fun way to learn science, without having to get overly “scientific-ky”.

Enjoy this good read.
