Sometimes a book review takes a few paragraphs to get going. You have to read a bit before you find out if the reviewer had some problems with the book or if there might have been a few things that the writer might have done differently. Then there's this review. Here's how it starts:

"In “labelling Churchill as ‘ape-like’ and claiming that Timothy McVeigh was driven by ‘primate’ instincts, the authors of Sex and War hope to prove that war is an evolutionary trait. Their thesis is mind-blowingly dumb."
