"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

Anyway, it's written in a relatively easy to read style, organised and presented well, and deep in content. I highly recommend.
