Praise

“Authoritative and surprisingly entertaining.” —Chicago Tribune

Survival of the Prettiest is the first book to pull all of the science on beauty into one lively yet thoughtful package, showing again that it’s not just ax-grinding males who believe that biology continues to play an important role in our lives.” —The New York Times Book Review

“Through a series of global scientific studies, Etcoff . . . presents a compelling argument for why so many cultures are influenced by beauty.” —The Boston Globe

“Nancy Etcoff . . . writes confidently that today’s culture of beauty is not a backlash against feminism. She delves into why we devour fashion magazines, agonize about waist sizes, and gaze longingly at objects of desire.” —Houston Chronicle

“[A] sprightly, spunky, well-written treatise on the Darwinian science of looking good.” —Entertainment Weekly
