This very short book by three scientists critically examines whether neo-Darwinian evolution is sufficient to account for the development of human beings. Whatever your view of evolution, this is a helpful book. If you are convinced by modern Darwinian theory, this book will stimulate and challenge your thinking. If you are skeptical of Darwinian theory, this book will provide a lot of food for thought. The five brief chapters look at experimental research on proteins and what they mean for human origins, the fossil record, genetic similarities between humans and chimps, and population genetics as applied to humans. The many footnotes to primary sources encourages further exploration of the topics discussed. A great introduction to the debates over human origins.Was this review helpful?
