About the Author

ROB BROOKS is director of the Evolution and Ecology Research Center at the University of New South Wales in Sydney, Australia. He is the recipient of the Australian Academy of Science Fenner Medal, and an internationally recognized expert on evolutionary biology and ecological systems.


"[Brooks] is at his best when he warns about the global political consequences of dramatically unequal sex ratios found among the poorest and most populated Asian countries."-- "Publishers Weekly"
"This is a startling insight into the relevance of evolutionary biology to our society and cultures."-- "COSMOS Magazine"
"It's good fun, and a reminder that while Homo sapiens possesses a big cerebral cortex we also drag around a genetic legacy kick-started by our ancestors' decision to climb down from trees, arguably the first of many bad evolutionary moves."-- "The Australian"
"A sublime piece of popular science."-- "The Sydney Morning Herald"
