I'm going to take advantage of my newbie blogger status and mention a book that everyone should read. Really! It's Dr. Tatiana's Sex Advice to All Creation. The Definitive Guide to the Evolutionary Biology of Sex, by Oliva Judson. This is simply a fantastic book about the evolution of sex. I have now used it for two classes. The first was a graduate seminar where I used it to whet the appetite of the grad students for the primary literature (even though it is a "popular" science book, it is very well referenced). I am currently using it for my freshman seminar course "Sex: why we do it", where it is not only a great introduction to the evolution of sex, but also to evolution itself.
For those that already have made Dr. Tatiana's acquaintance, who is your favorite correspondent?
