The Trouble with Testosterone: And Other Essays on the Biology of the Human Predicament, Sapolsky, Robert M.
6 The Trouble with Testosterone: And Other Essays on the Biology of the Human Predicament Sapolsky, Robert M.
068483409X / 9780684834092 Very Good. 
Hardcover. 1st edition hardcover with dustjacket, published 1997 by Scribner. Only light wear to jacket. Clean and unmarked; pages bright; binding tight. 288 pages; black-and-white photos. Language: English. Biologist and neuroscientist Sapolsky 'writes on the biological aspects of human behavior. Subjects in this provocative and highly literate collection include male aggression, the onset of puberty, the psychology of guilt, and possible connections between madness and religious experience. The author implicitly invites readers to ponder two recurring themes: there are no simple answers to questions of why people act the way they do, and even the most deviant behaviors can be seen as normal behaviors taken to extremes. This book offers lots to think about. Highly recommended.'-- Gregg Sapp, Library Journal, 1997. Keywords: science, scientist, popular science, neurology, essays, 1990s.
