I learned quite a bit of information from the Red Queen but some of the baseline assumptions are quite stereotypical of a western view point and lacks any discussion of the various types of relationships beyond traditional pair bonding (marriage) and polygamy (as defined by one man and several women).
Tons of factual evidence makes for a very fascinating read however I am struck over and over again by the blatant biased and unsubstantiated conclusions and or comments that accompany good facts and theories. Try Sex at Dawn: The Prehistoric Origins of Modern Sexuality for a perspective that does not frame paleo times in conventional/modern terms.
This book provides an incredibly enlightening moral analysis of eating meat and really does do a good non-biased job at it.
Unfortunately, some of the nutritional assumptions are just plain wrong.
What you get out of it: eat meat from local/sustainable/moral sources, not factory farms.
all I want to do is buy 10+ copies to give it out to all my friends/relatives because it shatters the preconceived notions of what causes weight gain and thus what not to eat to be healthy
