How Men Age

What Evolution Reveals about Male Health and Mortality

While the health of aging men has been a focus of biomedical research for years, evolutionary biology has not been part of the conversation--until now. How Men Age is the first book to explore how natural selection has shaped male aging, how evolutionary theory can inform our understanding of male health and well-being, and how older men may have contributed to the evolution of some of the very traits that make us human. In this informative and entertaining book, renowned biological anthropologist Richard Bribiescas looks at all aspects of male aging through an evolutionary lens. He describes how the challenges males faced in their evolutionary past influenced how they age today, and shows how this unique evolutionary history helps explain common aspects of male aging such as prostate disease, loss of muscle mass, changes in testosterone levels, increases in fat, erectile dysfunction, baldness, and shorter life spans than women. Bribiescas reveals how many of the physical and behavioral changes that we negatively associate with male aging may have actually facilitated the emergence of positive traits that have helped make humans so successful as a species, including parenting, long life spans, and high fertility.

Rezension
"This gracefully written, authoritative book is worth ten stay-young-forever self-help fairy tales. If you want to grasp the biological and psychological realities of male aging, this is the book for you. It will help you age better, stronger, healthier, and smarter, without losing your sense of humor."--Melvin Konner, author of Women After All: Sex, Evolution, and the End of Male Supremacy
