It's not you, it's your genes

Brilliant, funny, brave book about human sexuality that occasionally strays too far into academia in an attempt to defend its central theses: Human beings were much much better off living as nomadic tribes in polygamous or polyamorous relationships. No going back now, though. Well written but probably too long by half, citing endless examples to make its case when a few would do just nicely. But rare to find a book on a topic this weighty to be so conversational in tone and funny.
PLOT SPOILER: Sadly, while the authors make a brilliant argument for polygamy, they offer no route to achieving it. Short of an apocalypse, I suppose.
