About this book

The author argues that the true purpose of sex is to maintain the well-being of a population's gene pool by overcoming the unfavourable mutations and environmental damage that threaten it. |The risks to the individual in sexual reproduction are the necessary cost of maintaining the continuity and immortality of life. 'This book sets a new standard for the general reader's book on evolution, laying aside purple prose and getting down to the red meat of evolutionary theory' - Michael Rose.
