Press on The Beast in Us:

Dagmar van der Neut describes interesting theories about, for example, the relative unimportance of men, homosexuality, the origins of love and why one species is created big and another small. She does it all in a sober and often witty style, with plenty of examples from the animal kingdom. – Kijk ****

Dagmar van der Neut’s book is full of fun anecdotes, silly comparisons and extraordinary ways of making love. And it’s informative too […] a treat! Relaxing, without doubt, and it will raise a chuckle. –
