About the Author

Dr John Long is one of the world's leading palaeontologists and an award-winning author. Currently Vice President of Research and Collections at the Natural History Museum of Los Angeles County, previously John was Head of Sciences at Museum Victoria, and Curator of Vertebrate Palaeontology at the Western Australian Museum. His CV is as impressive and as long as, well, as long as an Argentine Duck's todger - 42.5 cm to be precise. And his name, Dr John Long, is wonderfully appropriate for this cheekily titled popular science book.John Long will receive in December the prestigious 2011 Royal Society of Victoria Research medal.


'John Long is renowned as the discoverer of the earliest evidence for internal fertilisation. In a book encompassing 380 million years of sexual evolution, he lays the full significance of his discoveries in fascinating context' - Tim Flannery. 'You are now holding a compromise between a book that you should carry hidden inside an opaque bag, and a sober respectable scientific treatise. It's a deliciously written account of the evolution of sex, in all of its bizarre manifestations. Read, blush, and enjoy!' - Jared Diamond, Professor of Geography at UCLA, Pulitzer-Prize-winning author of Guns, Germs, and Steel. 'I shall never feel the same about ducks again. Or fish. This is first class science told with brilliance and flair. Read and be astounded.' - Robyn Williams
