“By bringing the evolutionary vision systematically into one of the last unconquered provinces, Nesse and Williams have devised not only means for the improvement of medicine but fundamental new insights into the human condition.”–Edward O. Wilson, Harvard University

“In moving the focus from ‘how’ to ‘why’ questions, Nesse and Williams introduce readers to a new way of thinking about illness, one that promises to be of increasing interest as…our culture turns toward evolutionary explanations for human predicaments.”–Peter D. Kramer, author of Listening to Prozac
