Falling Sideways - Holt, Tom

From the moment Homo Sapiens descended from the trees, possibly onto their heads, humanity has striven for civilization. Fire. The Wheel. Running away from furry things with big teeth. All would be testament to man's ascendancy; if one man didn't believe every civilization is actually run by frogs.
