The average american male (Chad Kultgen)

Does what it says on the tin...average, bordering vulgar, and frankly gross at times. The girlfriend character is particularly irritating (sooo cliche). This is what a certain type of men's magazines would like women to accept as normal male behaviour (poor things, it's in their nature, can't help it really...) - well that makes me happy to belong to the other half of humanity ! Not money wisely spent as far as I am concerned...

The Selfish Gene: 30th Anniversary Edition--with a new Introduction by the Author (Richard Dawkins)

Not what you would expect from the title... this is the revised edition, with a foreword from the author explaining how this seemingly "wrong" choice of title brought him underserved criticism. Recommended for nerds like me who have an interest in post-Darwinian evolution theory (and for all of you who always wanted to know why eggs are bigger than sperms...withouth daring to ask your biology teacher)
