    Why do testicles hang the way they do? Is there an adaptive function to the female orgasm? What does it feel like to want to kill yourself? Does “free will” really exist? And why is the penis shaped like that anyway? In Why Is the Penis Shaped Like That?, the research psychologist and award-winning columnist Jesse Bering features more than thirty of his most popular essays from Scientific American and Slate, as well as two new pieces, that take readers on a bold and captivating journey through some of the most taboo issues related to evolution and human behavior.

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

    It is rare that a scientific book contains anecdotes from the author, and this one does in Jesse's illuminating perspective. His narration is clever and endearing. Topics are well-researched and conveyed in an interesting manner. The book is smart, thought-provoking and at times, deliriously funny. Cannot wait for his next book.

    If there is ever an opportunity to sit next to Jesse Bering at a dinner party, I'm sure that will be the best seat in the house!
