Fascinating Read 20 juin 2013

Heard about this book in the Chicago Sun Times and thought it sounded interesting. Not being particularly scientifically literate, I decided it was probably above my pay-grade. I saw the author discussing the book on TV and changed my mind. He had a way of explaining things that made intuitive sense, so I thought I'd give it try.

I'm so very glad that I did, an absolutely fascinating and highly accessible read.

Interesting topics discussed herein: declining sperm counts, benefits of breastfeeding, contraceptives, potty training, etc.

I recommend this book to anyone interested in human biology, human evolution, human reproduction, or interested in science generally. But no need for extensive scientific training, Martin has a way with words that makes complicated topics easy to follow and comprehend. For being as widely accessible as it is, his writing is not overly pedantic or condescending, just very informative and accessible. Those coming to the book with a some prior scientific training will also find plenty to enjoy as he seems to draw on a wide range of scientific research and methods from which to draw his conclusions. Best of all, he adds a bit of humor to boot.

Excellent read 8 juillet 2013
Par Alu Poo - Publié sur Amazon.com

I found "How we do it" a very intriguing book. As a biological anthropologist, I'm familiar with the topic of the evolution of human reproductive biology, but Robert Martin achieves a to present a superbly coherent picture of it. It is not easy to narrate science for a broad audience without being imprecise, but this book is a prime example that it is possible. And, rather than re-telling an old story, Martin presents his own ideas, supported by a variety of neglected studies and recent publications, in a very convincing way. For me, the two crucial points are that, first, male fertility is declining in many populations worldwide, and second, there is no "window" for conception in women. I think it is an important book, as these astonishing facts should be known by every teacher, to be told to every youth with the aim of replacing the common misperceptions that prevail even in well-educated people around the world.

Don't Walk - Run and Buy this Book Now...!!! 3 juillet 2013
Par TVExecProducer - Publié sur Amazon.com

This book is by far the best accounting of the evolution of human sexuality and human reproduction I have ever read in at least the past 30+ years that I've been a biologist. In addition, this book is written in a language and style that is easily understandable by the general public, not just targeted for other fellow scientists or students in that field of endeavor (as often is the case when professional biologists write books). I became a science and nature TV documentary filmmaker over 25 years ago working for a PBS station here in Los Angeles in order to bring the often times dull and boring topic of science documentaries to the TV screen (as well as receiving my Ph.D. in Biology from Cambridge University in England), and I am constantly inundated by books and programs that presume to be targeted for the general public, but are too often couched in the scientific language and literature of science professionals that is not understandable (or entertaining) to most people. Bob Martin's book breaks new ground in being not only understandable by the general public through his witty and upbeat writing style, but ALSO I found the book to be filled with brand new and pertinent information from the scientific literature (that even I was not at first aware of), and his book is based on the most up-to-date biological research currently available. Therefore, I find that this book represents the perfect conduit from the latest scientific research into the evolution of human reproduction, and brings it down to an engaging and entertaining contribution to anyone's knowledge base, regardless of how much science or evolutionary biology they previously knew. Kudos on a job well done...!!!

Fun and informative, clear and concise 10 juillet 2013
Par Greg Borzo - Publié sur Amazon.com

Told with wit and wisdom, this story of how our reproductive system works and how it came to be is fascinating -- as well as fun to read.

Such a topic could be covered in a dense, heavy and serious way, full of scientific terms and complex theories. Instead, Bob Martin, a world-class scholar, makes the topic approachable, understandable and even irresistible. He writes with a light, brisk touch but with comprehension and authority. A lifetime of learning and sifting when into this short tome, and it shows, as the book serves up the paramount knowledge and studies; ideas and information; anecdotes and answers about human reproduction.

This book is not titillating but it is scintillating. Read it and you will gain a greater understanding of human reproduction, one of the most vital concerns of human life and one that touches upon so many things that matter -- from sex, pregnancy and birth through hormones, health and happiness. Read it and you'll even find out which came first, the chicken or the egg!

A fascinating read 9 juillet 2013
Par Sandy Harcourt - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié
Buy it! A fascinating read, an easy read, indeed a romp to read.
Nevertheless, it is packed with info., scientifically accurate and up-to-date, critical of various unsubstantiated scientific claims, full of interesting ideas, and packed with a myriad little nuggets of extra information, such as that van Leeuwenhoek, inventor of the microscope, originally thought that sperm were parasites, that the ancient Egyptians advised on how to treat nappy rash, and that Digo mothers of Kenya potty-train their babies in the first few weeks of life.
I have lectured for years on the topic of this book, and done research on primate reproduction. But even so, I kept coming across information and ideas new to me. The author's knowledge is encyclopedic.
Yet the writing is far from the dry prose of an encyclopedia. From mating, through pregnancy and birth, to baby care, to contraception and its opposite, we get an absorbing account of the evolutionary and functional biology of reproduction. Just one example of the fascination of the subject and the book: we all know that breast-feeding is beneficial because breast milk contains antibiotics - and it turns out that in several countries mothers use breast milk to treat their infants' eye infections.
Don't be put off by the main title, 'How We Do It'. This not 'The Joy of Sex'. It is a serious, yet thoroughly entertaining and readable account of, as the subsidiary title has it, 'The evolution and future of human reproduction'.
