Anthropologist Peter McAllister set out to prove once and for all that man today is the best man who has ever lived. But to his disappointment, in nearly every category he examined modern man was beaten by his ancestors. Manthropology, then, is a look at male achievement - and underachievement. It kicks off in Ice Age France, where McAllister proves how a Neanderthal woman could beat even today's strongest strongman at arm wrestling. He looks at medieval Slavic poets who could take 50 Cent to school in a rap battle. And he takes readers to the jungles of Africa, where Aka Pygmy men have taken fatherhood to such extremes that they even grow breasts to suckle their children. For the modern man, the results aren't always pretty. But Manthropology is unfailingly smart and entertaining.
