A companion piece to the TV special that is really more of a coffee table book than anything else. Lavish color pictures enhance the text, and frequent sidebars help to explain interesting concepts, but prove somewhat of a distraction and interruption of the text.
If you are interested in the way we humans have developed and interacted with the world since our beginings then this is the book for you. Very detailed and fascinating insight into human history.
