Editor reviews

While Darwin's theories paved the way for a general public understanding of evolutionary biology, evolutionary psychology - the study of psychological traits from an evolutionary perspective - is less understood. This introductory guide, written by UK experts Robin Dunbar, Louise Barrett , and John Lycett, shines a light on the theories behind this rapidly-expanding field. A collected and confident narration from actress Miranda Nation enhances the listening experience, making it easy for listeners to absorb the varied array of in-depth information, case studies, and anecdotal examples.

Summary

Evolutionary Psychology is a uniquely accessible yet comprehensive guide to the study of the effects of evolutionary theory on human behaviour. Written specifically for the general listener and for entry-level students, it covers all the most important elements of this interdisciplinary subject, from the role of evolution in our selection of partner, to the influence of genetics on parenting.

This audiobook draws widely on examples, case studies and background facts to convey a substantial amount of information, and is authored by the UK’s leading experts in the field, from the only dedicated research and teaching institute.

Excellent Introduction to Evolutionary Psychology

Narration brilliant.

Content, just right for me with only limited psychological and evolutionary knowledge (I'm a Science Teacher).

Particularly like the chapter summaries.

On to The Moral Animal next.
