Three things I liked so far in the book:1. This being Chesterton, there are great jokes, odd rants and haunting phrases. Well-written, well-edited, fascinating book by a talented and inspired writer who has lived the life of a psychic empath. Or is it simply a Fantasy Attraction that could destroy their future. My 10-year-old daughter reads this faithfully every night because it keeps her attention and addresses issues she's thinking about and dealing with at her age.

er-biased myths to demonstrate that traditional views of maternal behavior are essentially wishful thinking codified as objective observation. As Hrdy argues, far from being "selfless," successful primate mothers have always combined nurturing with ambition, mother love with sexual love, ambivalence with devotion. In fact all mothers, in the struggle to guarantee both their own survival and that of their offspring, deal nimbly with competing demands and conflicting strategies.In her nuanced, stunningly original interpretation of the relationships between mothers and fathers, mothers and babies, and mothers and their social groups, Hrdy offers not only a revolutionary new meaning to motherhood but an important new understanding of human evolution. Written with grace and clarity, suffused with the wisdom of a long and distinguished career, Mother Nature is a profound contribution to our understanding of who we are as a species--and why we have become this way.
