In actuality, this is a book of cartoons. Drat! OK, I rolled the dice and lost. One would hope, however, that the cartoon illustrations would have some basis in reality; unfortunately, manytimes the author mixes reality with fallacious concepts-- and the fallacious concepts are not even humorous. If this softcover book is a reflection of the author's knowledge of sex in the animal world then not only is the author shockingly ignorant, but also prone to insulting any intelligentreader. But then, maybe no intelligent reader would knowingly buy such tripe.
Killfile one author.
BTW, mules certainly can "do it"-- it is just extremely rare to have any issue!And so it goes, page after page
Just to double-check, I looked up many of the author's claims about how certain animals "do it" in reputable science books, and found everything to be 100% accurate. The accompanying cartoons are obviously not meant to be literal illustrations, but just plain and simple gags.
If you want a textbook about animal reproduction, go out and spend $60 on "Zoology 101". If you want an entertaining mix of facts and humor, "How The Animals Do It" is worth the price.
