If you are interested in animals (including ourselves), genetics, gender, environment, science, history, or really just very well written books... this could be for you!

We have all heard about how scientists and other inventors, creators, etc. have been overlooked because of patriarchal "norms". Well the same holds true in the animal kingdom. Read this eye-opening book.

Informative and funny. It combines research ,anecdotes and personal interviews to illuminate a lot about the females of many species.It’s a meditation on how preconceived notions can effect science even without the scientists realizing it. Here and there a bit preachy, but a great read

Written in language both chummy and intensely Euro-centric. Lots of great and new facts and ways of looking at certain animals and the myths thats surround them. It very much had thr feel of chatting with the writer at a cocktail party, or perhaps its the edgy tv series she's always wanted to produce.

In this fascinating and fun book, each chapter focuses on an animal we humans have had misconceptions about, especially those we have historically either looked upon in scorn or regarded with disgust. Author Lucy Cooke is naturally witty and inserts just the right amount of humor into the text. Not only will you receive the gift of visualizing frogs in underpants, there are oodles of charming facts and "wow!" moments. My favorite, heart-warming passage reveals that sloths don't sleep most of their day, but instead spend the majority of their time "quietly hanging in the trees in a seemingly meditative state, motionless, with their eyes open and staring blankly into space" (would that we all could do so).… (mer)
