Howdy folks!

I've been wating to do another book review for some time, as the first one I did on my blog was a large success, but I wanted to try something different. So, I decided to put my band new iMac to work.

I decided that I would film and edit together a video review of a new book that I just finished reading entitled "The Nature of Human Nature," by Dr. Carin Bondar, PhD.

Just one note - This was a quick little video, and any in the future (if you like them), will become better quality. Remember, just like science, this will be a collaborative effort. So, I'd love to hear what you think in the comments section below!

Very cool video and idea for your blog.

She explains why girls love bad boys? And masturbation? I don't know if anyone needs to analyze why people masturbate. But now I'm intrigued so I might have to check it out.

Thanks for the review!

P.S. Love the 5 o'clock shadow!

Thanks everyone!

JadeEd - Thanks! *BLUSHES*She explains the trend of girls liking bad boys, and that it is not only in humans, but in other species too. As for the masturbation thing, she describes how it is a biological imperative, and actually increases biologial fitness in some cases.

All in all, a really interesting book! And, I even got a signed copy from her (which was so nice of her to do)
