Description
Why do men talk and women gossip, and which is better for you? When is it good to be tall and why is monogamy a drain on the brain? And why should you suspect someone who has more than 150 friends on Facebook? Evolutionary anthropologist Robin Dunbar—also the author of The Human Story, Grooming, Gossip and the Evolution of Language, and The Trouble with Science—explains here how our evolutionary history colors everything from why we kiss to how religious we are. Dunbar discusses such phenomena as why "Dunbar's Number" (150) is the maximum number of acquaintances you can have, why all babies are born premature, and the science behind lonely-hearts columns.
