Sperm wars : infidelity, sexual conflict and other bedroom battles by Robin Baker ( Book )
8 editions published between 1996 and 2006 in English and held by 223 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Published to acclaim and controversy a decade ago, Sperm Wars is a revolutionary thesis about sex that turned centuries-old biological assumptions on their head. Evolution has programmed men to conquer and monopolize women while women, without ever knowing they are doing it, seek the best genetic input on offer from potential sexual partners. In this book, best-selling author Robin Baker reveals these new facts of life: ten percent of children are not fathered by their "fathers;" less than one percent of a man's sperm is capable of fertilizing anything (the rest is there to fight off all other men's sperm); "smart" vaginal mucus encourages some sperm but blocks others; and a woman is far more likely to conceive through a casual fling than through sex with her regular partner. It's no wonder that Sperm Wars is a classic of popular science writing that will surprise, entertain, and even shock

2 editions published in 1995 in English and held by 196 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Fragile science : the reality behind the headlines by Robin Baker ( Book )
11 editions published between 2001 and 2013 in English and held by 195 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Over a diverse range of subjects, Robin Baker shows that the science we as consumers believe to be true is often an oversimplification - a convenient way of explaining complex subjects which are little understood. His investigations reach their own, startling conclusions. Could it be possible, for example, that using sun screen is actually increasing our chance of skin cancer? More and more people are taking Prozac, but does science have an easy answer to explain why? We all know the arguments in favour of conservation, but could there be strong biological arguements against it?
