Sperm wars : infidelity, sexual conflict and other bedroom battles by Robin Baker( Book )

21 editions published between 1996 and 2006 in 3 languages and held by 262 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

"Robin Baker, an expert on evolution and human sexual behavior turns his attention to the reproductive revolution that is happening around us. Baker explains the technologies of assisted reproduction that are currently available and those likely to become available as we proceed in the twenty-first century: from in vitro fertilization and surrogate motherhood to cloning, gamete banking, and novel ways of micromanipulating sperm and egg, testes and ovaries."--Jacket

Fragile science : the reality behind the headlines by Robin Baker( Book )

11 editions published between 2001 and 2013 in English and held by 184 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?

Sex im 21. Jahrhundert : der Urtrieb und die moderne Technik by Robin Baker( Book )

12 editions published between 2000 and 2002 in 6 languages and held by 37 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Provocative and often shocking, Sex in the Future examines how advances in reproductive technology will change human behavior. In-vitro fertilization and surrogate motherhood could mean the end not only of infertility but also of the need for men and women to form relationships or for women to interrupt careers for pregnancy. Sperm and egg storage mean people can literally shop for genes, while cloning, egg-egg fertilization, and other techniques will lead to fertility on demand in a Reproduction Restaurant. What will all our choices be, and how far down this road do we want to travel?</D
