It is with awe that I remind myself of this wonderful book, written by the ZOOLOGIST, Desmond Morris. At the very beginning itself, he proposes the reason for calling man a NAKED APE. If you read each chapter, you will come to an understanding about the evolution theory, and NATURES way of adopting and adapting. Please read that book. and, please tell me what you felt. about HUMANS.

Yes I have read the book a few years ago. At the simplest level, Morris strips the veneer of civilization and artifice and describes human behaviour in its fundamental context. He does propose some startling truisims that have been acknowledged in different fields of thought as a basis for understanding mankind. His other book manwatching is also worth a read. Cheers.
