Reviews

"In the style of Neil deGrasse Tyson's Astrophysics for People in a Hurry (2017), this slim volume is full of scientific wonders. . . . Readers will find themselves marveling at the incredible journey we have taken to become the preeminent life-form on our planet."--Booklist

"Keeping up with the flood of new information about our human origins is hard enough. So it is a minor miracle that Silvana Condemi and François Savatier have been able to summarize it all so elegantly and authoritatively in this short but highly readable book."--Ian Tattersall, coauthor of The Accidental Homo Sapiens

"This book will capture the attention of all readers interested in learning more about the deep history of our species. It is up-to-date and accurate--and well-written for the layperson--by a research-active scholar and a science journalist."--Eric Delson, professor of anthropology at Lehman College and the Graduate Center, City University of New York; and director of the New York Consortium in Evolutionary Primatology
