Media reviews
This book represents a significant contribution to the field, as the authors have crossed the lines between zoology, anthropology, physiology, psychology, and the study of evolution, to create a story about one of the fundamental requirements for sustaining life--a constant body temperature. --Steven M. Frank, M.D., Associate Professor, Johns Hopkins Medical Institutions
