Editorial Reviews

From the Inside Flap

This stunningly illustrated book provides new understanding of human behavior based on our almost identical genetic heritage. However much we may think we have evolved from our animal ancestors, Desmond Morris shows that our instinct and behavior are still rooted in our animal past. 140 full-color and 10 black-and-white photographs. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

The behavior of man explained. It answers a lot of questions I have about how people live their lives and why they act as they do.
