"...In this second edition of a work that first appeared in 2004, Workman and Reader provide a solid overview of evolutionary psychology....The writing is fluid, and their presentation of the concepts and perspectives of evolutionary psychology are accessible....the book is strongest in areas where the field is strong (mate selection, kinship, and group behavior)....No library of any size should be without a book, if not a section, on evolutionary psychology, and this title, though intended as a textbook, is a candidate....Recommended..."
--S.R. Flora, Youngstown State University, CHOICE
Now in 2 colours, and with enhanced pedagogy, this new edition includes a new chapter on 'Evolution and Individual Differences'.

I highly recommend this book for those who want to learn how our behavior is shaped by natural and sexual selection. If you don't know much about evolution, however, I recommend reading up on it first, as understanding such a complex theory is essential for understanding how it shapes our behavior.
Overall, it's well written, concise for what it covers, and great for introducing the reader into basic concepts of biology that are essential for understanding any part of psychology.
