If you ever wondered why men and women act the way we do this book will reveal the answers. From why men are aggresive by nature to why mothers and family always comment on why a baby looks like dad. This book is filled with facinating insights into human nature. Read by Simon Prebble who is my favorite narrator only adds to the book! yes its a science book so if your not into science you may not enjoy it. But if your a nerd you will love it!
Whoever chose the title for this book was a genius! "Red Queen" and "Sex" hint at something a bit humorous and titillating. It ends up being a rather boring discussion about human reproduction being sexual rather than asexual and conjecture as to why. It harkens back to 10th grade biology and the study of Gregor Mendel and his genes. I zoned out on this stuff in the 10th grade and again in the middle of this book. If you're biologically inclined, you might find it interesting. The narrator is good and injects humorous tidbits here and there, but not enough to hold my attention.
One of the few books in my Audible history that I haven't finished. Got it because of the title....very catchy. Unfortunately, it's just a pschological treatise on a narrow subject that every once in a while throws in a reference (sometimes abstract) to Alice's Red Queen. Probably would have been better to buy it based on its merits (as to which I have no opinion) but it was a disappointment based on expectations the title produced. Essentially a one trick pony.
