`It is refreshing, in the wake of the sometimes uncritical enthusiasm for evolutionary psychology, to read a thoughtful and balanced account of the problems as well as the benefits of an evolutionary perspective on human behaviour' - Professor Anne Campbell, Durham University
A book very well organized with syntheses that help in understanding the contents. The information presented in the boxes promotes a more specific reading. It is a good complement of study.
I haven't received approval for the course yet, but was hoping to find a slightly higher level text since it will be a senior seminar.
Interesting content, yet lacks the depth that I require for the postgraduate students.
Very interesteing literature I sertainly will use as a reference book when creating material in courses in general psychology. It will not be adopted as course literature since it is too narrow, it would need a course of its own to be covered.
This is a clear and well presented book, more interesting and accessible than other beginners guides to evolutionary psychology.
An ideal book for final year undergraduates. It will go a long way in helping to overcome the problem of introducing the theory without sounding like an evangelist for the subject.
I will recommend this book for final year honours and MSc students who take my option in Cognitive Neuroscience as supplementary reading and will order copies for the library for next academic year.
The book is up-to-date and easy to understand. We will recommend it as one of the textbooks for the course.
This title is also available on SAGE Knowledge, the ultimate social sciences online library. If your library doesn’t have access, ask your librarian to start a trial.
