The work exposes many of our cultural endeavors as fundamental aspects of animal behavior. If you want to know why we kneel when we pray, why women use lipstick, or why people commit atrocities, this book will give you the answers.

Abstract:
There is considerable evidence that the way we think and the manner we behave are programmed into our species. Many patterns of behavior in relation to aggression, sex, dominance, etc., can be traced from our animal ancestors to practically all human societies. These behavior patterns are undoubtedly products of natural selection, and expose many of our cultural endeavors as fundamental aspects of animal behavior. If you want to know why we place knick-knacks in our offices, why we kneel when we pray, why women use lipstick, or why cultured individuals sometimes commit atrocities, this book will give you the answers.

Reviewer: Edmond Odescalchi
Reviewed by Melissa Brown for Scribes World Reviews: "An excellent primer for anyone who wants to know why we act the way we do, this book is not only educational, but enjoyable as well. After reading The Evolution of Behavior, your favorite excuse may be, 'Evolution made me do it'." (Four Stars.) For the complete review, see www.scribesworld.com/reviews/nonfiction/am/evolutionbehavior.html Reviewed by Paul Lappen for Dead Trees Review: "This book is surprisingly good. It is short, and it presents science and human behavior in very easy to understand terms. It is even recommended for those who think that they hate science. This is well worth reading." (Five Stars.)
