Editorial Reviews

Review

"This introduction to one of the most exciting approaches to psychology is the best one out there―authoritative, lively, and balanced. It manages to be both theoretically sophisticated and accessible to a wide range of students interested in human nature and how it got that way."- Steven Pinker, Johnstone Professor of Psychology, Harvard University, USA

"The 6th edition of David Buss’s Evolutionary Psychology: The New Science of the Mind, provides students with a thoroughly updated version of the best evolutionary psychology textbook on the market. I have used several competitors of Buss’s textbook in the past, and none are as successful in inspiring student enthusiasm for the field. Buss is an extraordinarily gifted writer: students consistently report that this textbook is the most interesting textbook they have ever been assigned. Surely some of this excitement is attributable to the fascinating field of evolutionary psychology, but I credit Buss’s remarkable skill as a writer, along with the outstanding organization and presentation of the material." - Todd K. Shackelford, Ph.D., Distinguished Professor and Chair Co-Director, Evolutionary Psychology Lab, Oakland University, USA

About the Author

David M. Buss received his Ph.D. from the University of California at Berkeley. He began his career in academics at Harvard, later moving to the University of Michigan before accepting his current position as professor of psychology at the University of Texas. His primary research interests include human sexuality, mating strategies, conflict between the sexes, homicide, stalking, and sexual victimization. The author of more than 300 scientific articles and six books, Buss has won numerous awards including the American Psychological Association (APA) Distinguished Scientific Award for Early Career Contribution to Psychology, the APA G. Stanley Hall Lectureship, the APA Distinguished Scientist Lecturer Award, and a Robert W. Hamilton Book Award for the first edition of Evolutionary Psychology: The New Science of the Mind. He is also the editor of the first comprehensive Handbook of Evolutionary Psychology (Wiley) and co-editor (with Patricia Hawley) of The Evolution of Personality and Individual Differences. In 2013, he was named one of the 30 most influential living psychologists in the world. He enjoys extensive cross-cultural research collaborations and lectures widely within the United States and abroad. His hobbies include tennis, squash, and disc golf, and he is an avid film buff.

Reviewed in the United Kingdom on February 13, 2021
I'm a 3rd year psychology student at Uni, this book was recommended to me by lecturers and it does not disappoint. This book is a great textbook talking about a wide area of evolutionary psychology and with references to other relevant research which is great for extra reading and essay writing. David Buss is a good writer and the text is easy to following for a highly detailed and in-depth book.
