Advance Praise for The Good Book of Human Nature: "Scholars of religion and evolutionary biology, as well as students at the undergraduate and graduate levels, will find this book to be both informative and fascinating." --Library Journal "I never imagined that the familiar stories of the Garden of Eden, Noah's Ark, and the Sermon on the Mount would turn out to be unique anthropological documents. Carel van Schaik and Kai Michel are the authors best qualified to extract these insights." --Jared Diamond, Pulitzer prize winning author of Guns, Germs, and Steel "It is simply astounding how much of the Bible makes sense when viewed in an evolutionary and anthropological light. This riveting, engaging and highly entertaining book is a must-read for anyone interested in the relationship between culture and biology." --Daniel Lieberman, author of The Story of the Human Body: Evolution, Health, and Disease
