Axel  Meyer - Adam's Apple and Eve's Heir


The latest findings from intelligence and gender research explained by an evolutionary biologist

How does the lottery of life work? What is typical of men and what is typical of women? Why do we behave as we do? Why do we have the same talents as our father and why do we take after our grandmother? Where does the power of the genes end and what can be changed by food, upbringing and culture?

Evolutionary biologist Axel Meyer has been looking into the "hot-button issues" in the field of genetic research and outlines what is known about such topics as sex vs. gender, intelligence, homosexuality and ethnic differences.

Using the latest research material he writes provocatively and vividly about how powerfully we are influenced by our genes. This book is thought-provoking, encourages discussion and is socially highly relevant.

"The evolution biologist Axel Meyer takes on the hot topic of gene research, providing a plethora of material for discussion and consideration."
