Chasing Antelopes is about how we manage our lives - and our health - in the modern world in the face of strong institutions, including the medical profession and "big pharma”. And, it is also about the role played by academic research in our lives, and just how coherent and robust this research sometimes actually is.

The author, Robin J. Willcourt, is a leading anti-aging expert currently residing in Australia. He has had a long and illustrious career, in both the USA and Australia, as a medical doctor specializing in obstetrics and gynecology.

In Chasing Antelopes, to illustrate what is really going on and to explain "why all this caused all that”, the author explores current, relevant - and sometimes controversial - topics including evolution, the human genome, obesity, cholesterol, the Paleolithic diet, hormones, sex (between humans and between certain chimpanzees), the ice age, and global warming.

For example, current medical practice says that if you don't sleep well, or if you have a low sex drive, or if you are feeling a little off color, you must be depressed and therefore need to take anti-depressants.

Frustrated at seeing mankind's once vibrant curiosity and willingness to question potentially misguided thinking virtually stamped out, Robin J. Willcourt, in Chasing Antelopes, takes us on a journey - using fully documented sources and peer reviewed published academic research - that challenges our thinking and encourages us to adopt new strategies to better manage our own well-being.
