Editorial Reviews

Review

"Physical appearance deeply influences our personal and social lives. In this compelling scientific story, the beauty of this volume shines as the authors illuminate the nature and nurture of physical attraction." - Thomas F. Cash, University Professor of Psychology, Old Dominion University, Norfolk, Virginia, USA

"The adroit selection of historical and literary quotations that begin each chapter presage the range and depth of coverage of the literature on physical attractiveness. This a scholarly treatment that will be of interest and accessible to a wide audience." - Professor Louis G Tassinary, Texas A&M University, USA

"Written in a very accessible style, the book is a good overview of the research in the area, and would be useful for anyone with an interest in beauty, appearance ideals and relationship formation." - Caroline Huxley, The Psychologist

I used this for my freshman research paper in college and it was a great help with many statistics and sources to back up its theories. I'm warning you right now that this book is not for non believers of the evolutionary stance on physical attraction.
