1: Man-made myth - From Genesis to Tarzan, man-made image of his past. By him, for him, about him, not her.
2: The Escape Route - Hardy's aquatic idea offers her an escape route - a way of explaining her past
3: The Ape remoulded - Bipedal, fat and sexual changes all due to water
4: Orgasm - re-orientation from quadruped to biped left women wanting. Taking it from behind was best, anatomy hasn't quite caught up
5: Love - Mothers love as well as romantic
6: Speech - Mama - the first word? Apes difficulty is breath control - the usual
7: The U-Turn - on elephants and why, if we were aquatic, did we return to the land?
8: Man the Hunter - Leaving the coasts moving up rivers to the land - hunting
9: Primate Politics - Long before Frans der Waal - Morgan had it right
10: What women want - Babies, what's wrong with being an animal (shouldn't it be 'mammal, Elaine?) anyway?
11: Present and Future - Women controlling affairs - choosing not to have kids and choosing the sperm she wants
