The Extraordinary Story of Human Origins
Authors: Piero Angela, Alberto Angela
Publisher: Prometheus Books
Non Fiction, Science and Nature
Eclectic Rating: 4 stars
The authors do a great job creating a "life in the day" tale of evolving hominids.
It's been years since I've even pondered this stuff, but recently I've been delving back into science, and this book provides an eye-opening, easy to understand look at evolution. This is the truth, what science knows about our history. We are genetically closer in relation to chimpanzees than a horse is to a zebra. That is scientific fact. Our world is old, and so is our species.
Excavating through sedimentary layers of earth and precise scrutiny of the bones of our ancestors reveal the history of our world, and us. This book tells the amazing story of human evolution.
Of course, newer discoveries keep changing what we know about our past, and add to the story of humanity, but this book is a great and highly recommended start for anyone wanting to learn about evolution.
