SEX, MURDER, AND THE MEANING OF LIFE A Psychologist Investigates How Evolution, Cognition, and Complexity Are Revolutionizing Our View of Human Nature

by | Read by Fred Stella

Contemporary Culture • 7.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2011

Kenrick’s book, with its sensationalistic title, is actually the academic’s account of his work in the field of evolutionary psychology, with personal stories helping to illustrate scientific insights into human nature. Kenrick’s sometimes overly feisty tone is tempered by Fred Stella’s smooth voice, ready expressiveness, and geniality. His voice is slightly husky and pleasant to listen to. The author mentions having a New York accent, but Stella’s is inconsistent—now here, now, where we would expect it, not. But the distraction proves minor, and the reading lets the book’s positives—the frequently interesting subject matter and Kenrick’s intelligence—come through.
