<br>"As an attempt to justify the existence of plateaus as direct outcomes of natural selection, the book is as good as it gets. The authors do a thorough job of presenting their ideas, along with the models and data they believe back these ideas up." -- Thomas B. L. Kirkwood, Institute for Ageing & Health, Newcastle University, Newcastle upon Tyne, United Kingdom<p><br>
