Description: In this compelling volume, George C. Williams illuminates the peculiar design features we humans possess, the effective adaptations that evolution has bestowed upon us, and why we have evolved the way we have. He explains such things as why we have eyes only in the front when clearly, we'd be better off with a pair in the back as well; why we were designed to crave sugar and fat, when both have been shown to be harmful to our health; why our bodies deteriorate so badly with age; why we are vulnerable to disease; why human babies must travel through the narrow pelvic ring when they could make a trip much more safely and easily through a birth canal situated in the empty space outside the ring; and much more.

Providing a biological foundation for thought on current philosophical controversies, such as the mind-brain problem, and the definition of human life in relation to abortion right and last rites, the author proves himself a masterful teacher of evolutionary science.
