Sperm wars : infidelity, sexual conflict and other bedroom battles by Robin Baker ( Book )
14 editions published between 1996 and 2006 in English and Italian and held by 259 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
Fragile science : the reality behind the headlines by Robin Baker ( Book )
12 editions published between 2001 and 2013 in English and Italian and held by 203 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?
