  • Outlines how hormones affect our daily lives, including our mood, health, choice of romantic partner, friendships, jealousy, aggression, and social behaviors
  • Evidence outlined therein shows that our behavior and psychology are influenced by our underlying biology
  • Considers how hormones acting together can produce context-specific responses, which helps to explain how individual hormones appear to function in paradoxical ways
  • Discusses competing theories for similar behaviors, such as the Challenge Hypothesis, the Biosocial Model of Status, Fight-or-flight response, and the Tend-and-befriend response
