Sex, Genes & Rock 'n' Roll - How evolution has shaped the modern world

Evolution might be ‘the most important idea anyone ever had’, as philosopher Dan Dennett puts it, but outside of biology the awesome power of evolutionary theory remains underappreciated and underused. Rob Brooks explores some very modern phenomena, including obesity, Asia’s missing women, decisions about children’s schooling and the appalling mortality rates among rock stars, to show that evolution can sit comfortably with other explanations in helping us understand our lives and our world.
