Evolutionary Psychology 101

Dear Colleague,

I write to announce the publication of my newest book, Evolutionary Psychology 101 – part of Springer’s Psychology 101 Series. This book includes a narrative writing style, modeled after how I’ve taught this class since 1999 – and has chapters on the basic ideas that underlie evolutionary psychology, the major behavioral domains that have been illuminated by this field (such as parenting, mating, and religion), and controversies that seem to constantly surround  applications of Darwin’s ideas to issues of human behavior.

I’m currently using this book as the reading materials for my undergraduate course in evolutionary psychology, and students seem to connect well with it.


If you might consider using this for a course that you teach, please check out Springer’s page for the book here (you can order examination copies):


Note that the book is priced to sell at $30 – and it’s slightly less at amazon:


You can find a sample chapter here:


And you can find the Facebook page for the book here:


Note that amazon bases its promotional strategies partly on customer reviews and ratings – so if the mood strikes and you might find time to post a customer review on the amazon site for the book, that’d likely help this work reach a broader audience.

Of course, feel free to post a link to this promotional page or forward this information to others who may be interested in the field of evolutionary psychology – and don’t hesitate to contact me with any questions.
