Summary
"In The Science of Romance Nigel Barber explains that much of our present behavior can be traced back to the ancient evolved motives of our hunter-gatherer ancestors. In short, we exhibit the propensities that have evolved over millennia to increase reproductive success. Also drawing on the mating behavior of various animals, Barber finds illuminating comparisons that help to explain human actions and reactions."--Jacket
