Upcoming Public Talks – Rob Brooks

Rob Brooks has several talks coming up – all related to Sex, Genes & Rock ‘n’ Roll and the relevance of evolution to modern life.

I am also planning to be in the USA in mid-June and in South Africa in late June and early July to publicise the book in those countries. More details coming up on possible talks in those places.

The Week Magazine – Best Australian non-fiction

The blurb from The Week 30 December 2011
The Week magazine rated Sex, Genes & Rock ‘n’ Roll one of its two best non-fiction books of 2011. Here is what they had to say:

“This is a sublime piece of popular science,” said Bruce Elder in The Sydney Morning Herald. Professor Rob Brooks, an evolutionary biologist at the University of NSW, shows how evolution can explain key issues of the 21st Century. “The results are invariably illuminating and controversial.” And effortlessly entertaining, said Heather Catchpole in Cosmos magazine. Brooks’s tour of evolutionary biology is quite a ride, and he is refreshingly unapologetic in his support for science over religion.
