Reviews

Rutherford is a superb communicator, who eruditely explores the borderlands of history, archaeology, genetics and anthropology in this fascinating tour of our speciesCharming, compelling and packed with information. I learned more about biology from this short book than I did from years of science lessonsPacked to the brim with intriguing tales, clever twists and up-to-the-minute scientific discoveries, offering a completely new perspective on who we are and how we came to beAn outstandingly clear and witty account that shows beyond doubt how much we are part of the animal world, and yet at the same time how different we have become
