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.
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
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.

This covered the subject well and the person who read it was amazing. Never heard her before but I’m looking for more books that she narrates just to hear her.
