Review by William A. Spriggs
If you are serious about evolutionary psychology, then you can not live without this book. A series of well written essay-like definitions about Community, Competition, Darwinism, Eugenics, Evolution, Extinction, Genotype and Phenotype, Individualism, Lamarckism, Macromutation, Genetic load and more. Also included are two viewpoints on Adaptation, three on Altruism, two on Character, three on Fitness, two on Sexual Selection, and two on Natural Selection.  Highly recommended. Mid-to-difficult reading level.

The Adapted Mind: Evolutionary Psychology and the Generation of Culture.

Review by William A. Spriggs
Written at graduate-student level, this book is important because it helped to solidify the science of evolutionary psychology into a self-believing entity. Very well organized from beginning to end, but I recommend reading it after entry level books.
