"Like a peer-reviewed version of 'The Game', this geeky treatise mines evolutionary and experimental psychology to help readers 'succeed in their own mating-relevant goals.'" The authors' broad test of 'mating intelligence,' originally devised as a magazine quiz, measures both desirable traits like creativity and kindness, and relationship skills like empathy, lie-detection... and even a bit of deception." -- New York Times Science Times
"A lively, copiously researched treatise" -- Nature
"Mating Intelligence Unleashed: The Role of the Mind in Sex, Dating, and Love, by psychologists Glenn Geher and Scott Barry Kaufman, is a compendium of cutting-edge research into what makes people tick, romantically and sexually." -- NY Post
"Recommended to readers interested in evolutionary psychology and human sexuality." -- Library Journal

Provides a well researched foundation in the human physiological, mental and emotional trait clusters condusive to mating success in their respective environments. It also puts to rest the idea that you must be a conventionally attractive man/woman to succeed in the dating world. Other traits (competence , creativity, prestige etc..) can be developed to compensate for limited looks. From personal experience, I don't agree with the idea a man cannot succeed in short term mating unless they have all the markers for good genes (tall, symmetry, wide shoulders, square jaw etc..). I only gave four stars because I believe the book should have provided more detailed explanation on how somebody could raise there attractiveness. Excellent book!!!
