In short I may describe this book as another diamond from Jared s bag of gems where he told us a story of human sexuality from the evolutionary erspective In this book he described that the attributes of human sexuality eg concealed sex monogamous society recreational sex non existence of male lactation were developed because of specific evolutionary reasons More interestingly even the evolution of female menopause is a deceptive game of evolution to make by making less He also argued that the role of men and women in society was shaped by the long term effect of evolutionThe storytelling
style ample interesting facts and wise evolutionary reasoning make this book exciting inample interesting facts and wise evolutionary reasoning make this book exciting in if you frown upon the title I would like to highlight that the author is a biologist he is neither a saint nor a sinner biology as a science has a sort of Pjesme philosophical completeness that thehysics the most fundamental of all science doesn t ossess biology can answer both how and why uestions molecular biology andor genetics do answer the uestion of how for example they can tell you the step by step rocess of how a living being dies but they will definitely fail to answer why we die at all the why uestions in biology are addressed by the theory of evolution if you stuck with any riddle in biology just ask Mr Darwin he has the final sayphysics has uantum mechanics the theory of relativity and they can satisfactorily answer the uestion like how does the subatomic article interact with each other or how a galaxy is formed but unlike biology hysics has no theory that can answer the why uestions why a article interact in the way it does or why gravity exists that for the galaxy etc ut it in another way there is no theory of evolution in A'dan Z'ye Yaşar Kemal physics but we can imagine once such theory of why emerges inhysics it will face the same resentment as the evolution didas the first word in the title implies this book is on why and not on how why the human has so distinctive sexual biology than other Nacht primates or mammalian species so far I ve got the opportunity to read five books by Mr Diamond they broadly fall under two categories about human as a species this book and the The Third Chimpanzee belongs to this group the second category is about human society Guns Germs and Steel Collapse and World Until Yesterday goes heresome of the topic in The Third Chimpanzee has been discussed in great detail in this book here two concepts those I couldn t resist sharing as I never thought them in the way they wereresentedbeyond any doubt the brain and the thumb are the key adaptations those changed the fate of human species Mr Diamond argued that biologically female menopause is as revolutionary as the human brain and thumb unlike males females of human species Got Their Reproductive System Shutdown their reproductive system shutdown the age of fifty while they live several decades afterward apparently without any reproductive advantage why is sothe human birth canal was not evolved to deliver an enormous human fetus or twin as a woman grows older her mortality due to childbirth increases significantly a human child reuires a long time of nursing and caring before becoming independent and in old days society couldn t sue a father for refusing his childbearing responsibility hence as elderly women died during childbirth their infants used to follow the same fate of their deceased mother and genes not romoting the menopause were slowly removed from the gene ool menopause helped the single mothers to live longer and take care of their babies in early hunter gather and forager society the lesson is that the world we see today wouldn t be ossible without single mothersthe second interesting oint was about old The Collaborative Habit: Life Lessons for Working Together peoplebefore the invention of writingeople used to memorize enormous knowledge about their environment Curse of Rocky Colavito plants animals etc as they get older when they could no longer hunt or bring food to their tribesfamily instead of becoming obsolete they turned into a library oldeople were the living libraries in the ancient society they were valued and honored by their eople it is the invention of writing that took away the job from old eople as the librarian and turned them into a social burden.
