An anthropologist and brain scientist traces the arc of evolution to explain the relationships between males and females. He explores the knotty question of whether men are necessary in the biological destiny of the human race. He draws on multiple, colorful examples from the natural world—such as the mating habits of the octopus, black widow, angler fish, and jacana—and argues that maleness in humans is hardly necessary to the survival of the species. His conclusion takes the long view of history: our current human culture of male supremacy is a fluke, and it won't last long. If you're a fan of Jared Diamond this will probably appeal to you.
