A quote from the aforementioned book ...

"Understanding the often unconscious nature of genetic
control is the first step toward understanding that --
in many realms, not just sex -- we're all puppets, and
our best hope for even partial liberation is to try to
decipher the logic of the puppeteer."

I'm only 90 pages into it but I would already wager that The Moral
Animal is going to be added to the Virus list of recommended books.
