Dr. Schubin has truly succeeded in tracing a fun and informative account of human evolution by looking at fossil and extant homologues. Drawing (especially) from paleontology, but also from fields such as molecular genetics, Schubin takes the reader on an introductory ride through vertebrate form, function, and genetics. I would highly recommend this title as a must-have to any person interested in the biological, medical, or paleontological sciences, whether professional or avocational.

This book by Neil Shubin was an easy read, although I was not convinced with the author's opinions of how the human body came to be. Neil Shubin talked about how the human body was related to ancient fish found in fossils. He explores all over the world and shares his findings in this book. This book was an easy read with great pictures and graphs to explain each thought. The author had definite opinions about how the human form came to be. The author left no room for any religious theory.

    Poorly researched

    Most of the storytelling was just that without sound support.

    Boring!

    This was a book club choice so I had no idea what I was buying.
    As a Christian I find that it is sad that a person would dedicate so much time and research into proving "Where we come from"!
    It all comes down to faith....Fish don't talk or have feelings, so where does that come from????
