The evolutionary perspective has been pilloried by many, because findings are disliked. Unfortunately they are also mostly valid. Women don't come out looking very good, but this is how how paleolithic humans survive.
The author certainly has some personal biases. The early placement of women's mating strategies makes one wonder if the author was rejected by women a few times. And the author uncritically highlights Darwin's statements about "female choice". Maybe the author and Darwin lost some desirable woman to a more fit man. But typically human female choice is very limited.
Overall a decent text and highly insightful for anyone new to the field.
