    Story

    Since Darwin's day, we've been told that sexual monogamy comes naturally to our species. Mainstream science - as well as religious and cultural institutions - has maintained that men and women evolved in families in which a man's possessions and protection were exchanged for a woman's fertility and fidelity. But this narrative is collapsing....

    What made the experience of listening to Sex at Dawn the most enjoyable?

    It give a nice overview of the topic from a different view
    Although not all "evidence" is not as solide as the present it.

    and f the evidens not suite it is ignore or twiste

    regardless it is a great listen and i enjoyed this audiobook a lot

    i read an other reviewer "good but not great" i follow him/her in the review.

    but good is good enough for me ... it was not boring nor trying to convince you (too hard)

    Since its publication in 1960, William L. Shirer’s monumental study of Hitler’s German empire has been widely acclaimed as the definitive record of the 20th century’s blackest hours. The Rise and Fall of the Third Reich offers an unparalleled and thrillingly told examination of how Adolf Hitler nearly succeeded in conquering the world. With millions of copies in print around the globe, it has attained the status of a vital and enduring classic.

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I listened/read a bit about the topic so was a bit skeptical.

    the book is not about the "wrong" nazi regime, it is all too easy to call it evil. The writer takes you an a journey first prior to the nize period. trying and succeding to show what the living conditions of the different groups in pre- nazi germany.

    The french occupation of the rine land and the things that made party's like those of hitler possible. Never to fall in golifying nor ridicule the movement.
    The reads gets facts, raw data, and if the writer gives his view, what not ofthen happens and when it does to put things in persective, it is clearly noted.

    the writer is not scared to state "hitler was a genius", yet not read it the wrong way, he is no fan of the regime but recognise trhe fact the 1 person, not ever the favorite in his party can make it to dictator, using the democratic system.

    but is not just state, explains how germany and Hitler came to these ... honestly, factual and detailed.

    i would say a must read for everyone intersted in the topic,

    Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it


    What did you like best about this story?

    mianly factual ... not a writes view, not condeming book, make your own oppinions.
