Joe Quirk was born on the 5th of June 1966, in Westfield, New Jersey, of the United States of America. He is, as of the moment of writing, aged fifty-three. Quirk most often writes in the field of science and humor, along with adventure and adventure fiction.
It’s odd how different the feel from his books can be, as, more often than not, his science humor is deliberately different from his action fiction – almost as if it’s not the same person writing.
Quirk is a spokesperson for the non-profit Seasteading Institute, too. Not much is known about the private life of Joe Quirk, but we can say with a ton of assurance that he is an outstanding writer in both genres that he delves in. As such, we are now going to take a look at the best books by Joe Quirk.
It’s Not You, It’s Biology.: The Science of Love, Sex, and, Relationships
Quirk’s It’s Not You, It’s Biology.: The Science of Love, Sex, and Relationships was published in the year of 2008. It spans about 280 or so pages, but the content inside is somewhat worth much marvel.
By and large, the book represents a peculiar, fascinating look into what makes humans act and behave the way that we do when we’re in love, when we’re dependent on a certain person for coitus – i.e. sex –, and when we are in a relationship.
The narrative that Quirk uses, in the slapstick, funny, yet penetrating fashion that he is known for is genuinely entertaining. What most science-heavy books get wrong is the mood: they make it seem all so serious, thus leaving the reader almost drained by the time they’ve finished a particular paragraph or chapter.
Quirk, however, makes the whole process of teaching us things a really interesting and engaging one.
It’s been noted that upon reading the book, people feel an indescribable urge to share it with friends, family, and lovers, alike, as its merits for teaching are only exceeded by the entertaining facets it boasts.
Like the reader might have expected, Quirk tries to explain and justify the behavior of humans and how it is affected by certain conditions that arise in the point of one’s life. The differences between the attitudes and actions of men and women are, also, explained, as they are looked at from the lenses of history, biology, and even psychology.
Provocative, funny, and infinitely enthralling, the best books by Joe Quirk are the one to read next!
Sperm Are from Men, Eggs Are from Women
Sperm Are from Men, Eggs Are from Women by Quirk was published in the year of 2006. With a title quite as wonderfully provocative and striking as ‘Sperm Are from Men, Eggs Are from Women’, we can be sure that the substance of the book isn’t lacking one bit.
The trademark vigor and humor of Quirk aren’t lost in the slightest, but are all the more elevated in the context of the human sexual life, and reproduction.
The question that Quirk tackles so masterfully is concerned with our collective romantic life. Why is it that, in terms of romance, women are timid or a bit arch, while men seem to be oblivious and unobservant?
As Quirk is eager to let the reader know, it all stems from the actions and intricacies of the miniscule cells that are responsible for the creation and birth of us all. While this is the selling point of the book, there are also whole multitudes of tidbits and little-known facts that will have any reader fascinated.
Some such tidbits are the following: if the female portion of the relationship is unfaithful to the male, her own disloyalty can impact and modify the deeper biology of the male; in a sense, sperm could live its whole life without the need to see a female egg, while men, alike, are aroused and enthused at the sight of an undressed female body; and, how is it that we can change our own behavior so as to attract that alpha mate.
As engaging as any Quirk book, and doubly provocative. A clear contender for Joe Quirk’s best books.
Ultimate Rush by Quirk was published more than thirty years ago, now, in 1999. Despite having written books with exceptionally different themes, Ultimate Rush might be the weirdest, yet most satisfying book by Quirk.
As such, we think that Ultimate Rush is to be numbered among the best books by Joe Quirk. Unlike our other entries, this is actually an action-adventure tale by Quirk – one of the weirdest ones out there.
In it, we follow Chet Griffin. Chet is a convicted hacker, and, oddly enough, the fastest rollerblading messenger in San Francisco. Chet received one very simple thing to do. This particular assignment, however, took a turn for the worst very quickly. Soon enough, he’s being chased by Chinese mobsters, the police, and everyone and their mother.
The themes are of a very large, different range – there’s the obvious criminal fiction writing that is implied by the plot, but it’s also a singularly postmodern tale, then since Chet is a hacker, it gets into techno thriller waters, there are cyberpunk themes, and plenty more.
The book is a through and through panoply of different themes that interact in ways completely unfound, bewildering, and markedly entertaining. Quirk’s humorous prose coupled with the uncommon themes gives way for a story at once appalling, and astounding. Other books that readers will definitely love by Quirk are the following: Exult, Call to the Rescue, and Seasteading. We think that they are some of Joe Quirk’s best books.
