    Much food for thought.

    A very interesting and thought provoking book. Well worth the read. I learned many new facts and my thoughts were expanded.

    An interesting perpective

    The author has an interesting perspective on humans as a species. I particularly enjoyed the scope of the narrative covering the hunter gatherer stage through to what may be our future. It does not leave us with much to be proud of having devastated all competition from other species and also not very tolerant of differences within our species. The book is unusual in that it brings together many diverse disciplines, such as science, religion and social studies, to provide a comprehensive analysis of our emergence as the dominant beings on this planet. It is an easy read and thought provocing.

    Amazing

    A must read for every human being. Its scope is wide but the perspective with which this book was written makes it understandable and also very entertaining. Read it!

    An important caveat...

    If you are a homo sapiens this is a "must read." If you're not then don't even bother...you probably won't understand.
