"A controversial, idea-driven book that challenges everything you know about sex, marriage, family, and society"--Provided by publisher.
Christopher Ryan and Cacilda Jethá debunk almost everything we "know" about sex, pulling together various evidence from anthropology, primatology, archaeology, anatomy, and psychosexuality, to show how monogomy is far from human nature. "The authors expose the ancient roots of human sexuality while pointing toward a more optimistic future illuminated by our innate capacities for love, cooperation, and generosity."--Page 4 of cover.

It's an interesting but light read. It seems to me that the tone doesn't need to be so confrontational, but if you can ignore that, it's okay.

When you get to the part about how Jane Goodall's original study of chimpanzees was flawed, I feel I should point out that I saw her talk on TV once several years ago, and she said that if she were to go back and do it again, she would specifically have not interfered with the chimps.
