Why Teachers, Professors, and Presidents Have Affairs
My buddy Ben Casnocha has written an excellent summary of the book, "Why Beautiful People Have More Daughters".
It's well worth the read. Here are two of my favorite paragraphs:
"Male high school teachers and college professors in the United States (but not their female colleagues) have a higher-than-expected rate of divorce and a lower-than-expected rate of remarriage, probably because they are constantly exposed to girls and women at the peak of their reproductive value."
"To ask why the President of the United States would have a sexual encounter with a young woman is like asking why someone who worked very hard to earn a large sum of money would then spend it. The purpose of earning money is to spend it. The purpose of becoming the President (or anything else men do) is to have a larger number of women with whom to mate."
I've also added Ben's summary to the Book Outlines site; feel free to edit the summary if you have something to add.
