Very well written and researched. I would have purchaed the print edition had I known the color plates are not included with the ebook version. Also, the figures and black and white drawings are much better using the IPad reader. Cannot be read on my Nook.

Excellent introduction! Cro-Magnon, by Brian Fagan introduces what is currently known (and speculated) about Cro-Magnons and Neanderthals. Fagan spices up his narrative with imaginative vignettes of Neanderthals and Cro-Magnons as they may have lived. I imagine such vignettes would appeal to most everyone in the general public, including teens, though they may be a little irritating to a hard-core scientist who isn't interested in imaginative speculation (just a guess...I loved them!). Another excellent feature of this book is that it has incorporated historic scientific discoveries about prehistoric peoples with modern science like mitochondrial DNA tracing. Again, this feature would be of interest to most of the general public, but isn't meant for experts--there are a lot of simplifications for the sake of clarity. I think this book is an excellent introduction to prehistoric peoples that could be enjoyed by both adults and teens (even precocious pre-teens).

Brian Fagan writes a wonderful, educational book on the development of our early human ancestors based on actual facts only, filled in with logical conclusions. It is not a story where early humans are given fictional names but an interesting factual guide tieing in climate, human skills, food sources and tool development that got us to where we are today. I could easily picture his descriptions of the landscape cro-magnon man survived in. I loved this book and wish I could have been along on any of the archaeological digs.
