Everyone should read this book It's written by a transgendered woman biologist named Joan roughgarden. Even if your not particularly interested in biology it's a must read.I learned so much from reading this book. She covers all the topics , homosexuality in animals, intersex animals and people, cloning. Did you know some fish species have 3 sexes? It's a fascinating book. I couldn't put it down. She also talks about how biological theories are often biased specifically Darwin's theory. I'm much more enlightened after reading this book.

Format: Hardcover
Roughgarden's convingly-argued case against the theory of sexual selection is long overdue, and the alternative she proposes -- social selection -- is intriguing. However, one is advised to approach the second half of the book with caution. Roughgarden is far too uncritical in her acceptance of sex differences research. Definitely read Fausto-Sterling, Tavris, and/or Hubbard before tackling this one.

Ce livre se lit comme du bonbon tout en faisant comprendre de façon très claire à quel point la théorie de Darwin n'est pas basée uniquement basée sur la lutte mais aussi la coopération, ce dont je me doutais depuis toujours.

Très agréable à lire, et ce, même s'il s'agit d'infos scientifiques. bravo!

I loved this clearly written, pioneering book. It's a perspective I've never read before, backed by lots of facts and reasonable logic. It's hugely broadening to read, and I'd recommend it to anyone with the slightest interest in human beings.
I bought this fearing it would be too dry. I couldn't put it down.
One of the most intellectually stimulating books I've read in years.
