    " CogSci nerdiness "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Becky | 12/17/2013

    " This book presents some interesting ideas but I would like to see more development of the ideas and cross references to other studies. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Teri Zipf | 12/12/2013

    " Not bad, just not that great. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Charlene | 11/8/2013

    " self congratulatory book with questionable science based on serious bias and extremely outdated notions of evolution and what is 'natural". entertaining? yes. annoying? yes! some of the studies were good but not worth the rest. this book is GREAT if you want stuff to argue against:) "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Gil | 10/4/2013

    " Would have given 3.5 stars if it was an option. Teaches us about the reasons behind our desires and how genetics, environment, and evolution influences those. Definitely has made me think about certain things in new ways. It also confirmed other things I knew but couldn't verbalize. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Norah | 9/16/2013

    " Interesting read with short chapters, making it easy to digest, but also makes you want more. Intriguing and convincing topics. However, it only focuses on the authors research. Much more depth could be provided, but a good overview of several theories. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Katie | 5/4/2013

    " I agree with a lot of the other reviews on here- the subject matter was interesting but the disorganization and scattered presentation distracted from his ideas. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Jenny | 3/13/2013

    " Do I agree with most of what Kenrick is writing? Yes. Was it interesting? Not really. With a topic like this, it should have been. Good content but boring. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Smellsofbikes | 6/27/2012

    " Unusually good: combines observational psychology and some economics to discuss why we behave how we do, and how our seemingly irrational behavior generally indicates underlying rational models of the world that aren't working the way we expect. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Carlie Hughes | 5/6/2012

    " changed the way I think about everything "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sharada Prasad CS | 4/22/2012

    " This book is a quick read. The last five chapters of the book are very interesting! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 BLACK CAT | 4/18/2011

    " Human nature in different and interesting situations. "
