You are there in time to see it happen

Excellent reference with the added bonus that it reads like a novel.


Lazy and Incomplete

by LynnNicks on Mar 26, 2014

If you are looking for solid science concerning paleoanthropology do not buy this book. There have been hundreds of discoveries concerning our recent ancestry that are not even touched upon in this 'Clan of the Cave Bears' clone. This professor is like so many others in the academic world that are so amused and entertained by their own wit they don't bother to keep up with the most current information. DNA is the book he refuses to consider and it is understandable that after teaching students wrong information for decades it must be hard to reconcile his errors in light of the human genomic code. I wouldn't be quite so adamant about this if he had not tried to write a text book with the format of the Clan of the Cave Bears. It is simply embarrassing. Even more so is the fact that I fell for all the five star reviews. It seems that as a professor he can command his students to write reviews for his books... you get the idea. I've read a dozen works on the subject over the last couple years and this is the first negative review I've written anywhere. The subject is wide open now and more information comes forward each day. Check out a number of other books on the subject before you purchase, there are some wonderful things available. Just not this one.


Meet your previously anonymous ancestors

by AnneWilliams on Feb 26, 2009

Based on constantly emerging scientific evidence concerning our common humanity who came before the literate societies about whom we are more aware, this book is a detailed survey of the many generations of our ancestors who lived, worked, and slowly built upon our shared, common knowledge as a species to produce the life you are living today. Using the device of a visitor from the present, the author takes you to real villages and towns and explores our cultural milestones from 20,000 BCE to 5,000 BCE. A great way to take a vacation where few have gone before and expand your knowledge of who we were, who we are and the choices we are now able to make about who we want to be in the future.
