About this book

This adventurous romp into the frontiers of reproductive science will forever change the way you think about sex. Biologist and science writer Aarathi Prasad tackles inconceivable ideas about conception, from the Jesus Christ lizard's ability to self-reproduce (it walks on water, too) to the hunt for a real-life virgin mother in the 1950s. Prasad then transports us to the labs that today are inventing the equivalent of non-sexual selection, from egg-fertilizing computer chips to artificial wombs for men.
