Product description


`Review from previous edition [a] fascinating, pithy little book'
The Sunday Times, Books, March 2001

`His thesis is both subtle and concise'
Sunday Times 19/05/2002

`Nettle gives a clear and convincing summary of the argument that traits associated with mental illness have evolutionary advantages as awell as drawbacks . . .This is an excellent summary of the state of research into mental disorders and human nature'
The Observer 24/03/02

`Nettle writes well. He enlivens the scientific data with fascinating clinical vignettes, anthropological observations and well-chosen quotations from Shakespeare...a readable and up-to-date review of a very large body of literature on a fascinating subject.'
Nature, Vol 409, Jan 2001
