    Good overview-easy read

    It covered alot of ground and gave an good introduction. Many chapters ended abruptluy and there was some overlap but overall a good light read for anyone interested in a high level view of the history of their ancestors

    Wasn't as good as I thought it was going to be.

    I read some of the book and to me it seems like there is very little information that I don't already know. Everything seems summerized and most of the information in the book I already learned about in depth in magazines like National Geographic and Smithsonian.
