Interestingly...  there's a whole section of said book devoted to monkey
behavior.  Like most pop "science" books, this isn't devoted to discovery
rather it's devoted to spreading the recognition.  Ironic isn't it that
most humans don't even recognize when they're acting like monkeys...

unfortunate that so many can't recognize the same things...  if only more
people understood and internalized (and applied) evopsych.
