About this deal

Her essays and poems have appeared in Scientific American, Mind, Science Magazine, The Best American Nonrequired Reading, The Georgia Review, The Story Collider and Poets Against the War . Consider the aorta: our body’s largest artery stiffens and slackens with age, like overstretched elastic, and can bulge out forming an aneurysm that’s prone to rupture. She revises the opening of Stanley Kubrick’s 2001: A Space Odyssey, for example, replacing the testosterone-filled scene of early man as the “primordial inventor” of weapons, with women who were sharpening the tools while also making the babies.

Her writing has appeared in The Atlantic, Scientific American, Science, The Best American Nonrequired Reading, Lapham’s Quarterly, The Georgia Review, and on The Story Collider. I can highly recommend this book if you want to learn more about female evolution from a scientific perspective. There are footnotes present throughout the text which should be read as you see fit when you need extra info on a particular aspect that she touches on otherwise feel free to skip them. The title is a nod to the biblical first woman, but it’s what followed her that motivates Bohannon’s work―the entire span of human evolution and how it has led to women being very different, and in many underappreciated ways, from men.Eve also suggests a new way of thinking about one’s body: as a thing of time, built on a foundation developed over millions of years…Powerful…A love letter to the ancient, creaking wonder that is evolution. But Bohannon uses everything from the brain’s patterns of learning to mothers’ ability to speak in infant-friendly tones to make the case that language was invented between baby and caretaker. Every few pages there would be some fact I didn’t know or an idea that was new to me, and I would ask my wife if she knew, and she’d say, “What? And this is her first book, though she has apparently written a lot of articles for a variety of publications.

Each early ancestor that contributed a given feature (as near as we can tell) appears as a separate Eve. In the past I have shrugged away my irritation and told him to clean the wax out of his ears and suggested a good ENT. We see the internal adaptations and the growing brain, the hormones of puberty, motherhood, and the change of life at menopause. Eve also suggests a new way of thinking about one’s body: as a thing of time, built on a foundation developed over millions of years . She wants to change how we understand all of human evolution — to tear our eyes away from “the clever ape — always male” — and force us to consider the female of the species.Existing as a woman in our increasingly atomized world can be isolating in ways that are hard to even identify. A jaunty, digressive, and often whimsical tale examining the origins of some defining features of womanhood . This radical essay explores patriarchy and capitalism’s impact on beauty ideals, and inspires us to embrace our own disobedient bodies. When scientists study only the male norm, we’re getting less than half of a complicated picture; all too often, we don’t know what we’re missing by ignoring sex differences, because we’re not asking the question.

A smart, funny, scientific deep-dive into the power of a woman’s body, Eve surprises, educates, and emboldens. The Binding meets The Handmaid's Tale - Discovering a book of dark and ancient power, a convent librarian must defend it with her life. TheDeorhord by Hana Videen is a fascinating collection of medieval creatures large and small, and a delightful dive into Old English. Cat completed her PhD in 2022 at Columbia University, where she studied the evolution of narrative and cognition.Our books are printed on high quality, thick paper that is not only super to touch but also makes the colours stand out on every page. It truly is an account of the evolution of the female body which succinctly explains why we have the featured that we do and how they have helped the female of the species survive for thousand of years. As Teha'amana tells her story, other voices of the island rise: Hina goddess of the moon, a lizard watching from the eaves, Gauguin's mask of Teha'amana carved from one of the trees. The narrative abandons discussion of biology and the "Eves" she originally structured the book around, along with even a rudimentary understanding of how evolution occurs.
