Reviews
"[A] clear step forward....provides a plausible, empirically grounded account of language evolution in a captivating format, striking a difficult balance between brevity, clarity, and richness of documentation and detail....This is not a technical, specialist monograph, rather an accessible synthesis that offers enough 'big picture' to satisfy most generalist cognitive science readers, and enough details to keep connoisseurs turning (and annotating) the pages."
