If it were $9.54 cheaper, I'd buy a copy and read it, just to see if I still have the same steel stomach of my youth. This book seems to follow the ridiculous argument that evolution could not explain things like love and moral feelings. How can this get off the ground floor? Am I nuts? It seems obvious to me that evolution would strongly support urges that bind us together into family units; into paired couples for the purposes of child rearing; into loving parents that would die to protect their offspring. Nothing new here; but that doesn't stop religious idiots from pretending that this drivel proves naturalism (read: truth) wrong.
