About this book

Argues that when modern humans migrated out of Africa, perhaps only 100,000 years ago, the colder Eurasian climate selected for larger brains, more advanced planning, greater family stability, and increased longevity, with concomitant reductions in sex hormone, speed of maturation, reproductive potency, and aggressiveness.
