One of the authors is one of my ultimate inspirations in studying paleoanthropology, which was the reason I acquired this book, and it did not disappoint. The book provides a rather thorough introduction to human evolution, including a quick introduction to the evolution of mammals, the evolution of primates and the evolution of hominids before going into detail with the evolution of the human line.
I especially enjoyed and appreciated that the book took the time to not on A very enjoyable read. I especially enjoyed and appreciated that the book took the time to not only present me with an overview of the different human species and some guesses as to how they all fit together in the human family tree, which was more or less knowledge I had beforehand, but also to explain the biological, anatomical and genealogical science behind paleoanthropology in a way that was both detailed and understandable.
All in all, I definitely recommend this book to anyone who is studying or thinking of studying paleoanthropology, as well as general aficionados of human evolution. Additionally, the book is a great starting point for anyone who has an interest in human evolution, but limited knowledge of the scientific area and would like an understandable yet detailed introduction. A friend recommended it to me because I got obsessed with this neo-noir, Sci-Fi, clone show called Orphan Black.
So effing good. Challenging enough to make you reread some passages, but not enough to make it tiredsome or annoying. Simple enough to "flow", but not to make you think your reading obvious BS. Perfect for didactical purpouses. Aside from the content, I really like th vocabulary they used.
Not exactly "poetic", but not "cold" either. Another well written book by the authors to help us understand anthropology, history and those matters that use to lead to endless discussions out of lack of knowledge.
I found it quite interesting. I have always loved anthropology and although I already knew some things from my undergrad classes I learned quite a lot. If you are interested in human evolution is quite an entertaining book, don't think it's in English though This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers. To view it, click here. The book concludes saying that we are not "the chosen species" but "a unique species".
Some features of the different species were described in detail but were difficult for me to picture even with the great drawings. I visited Atapuerca while reading this book.

He obtained a master's degree and a doctorate in Biological Sciences at the Universidad Complutense de Madrid , where he is professor in the Paleontology Department of the Faculty of Geological Sciences. As a child he already showed a great interest in prehistory after reading The Quest for Fire and visiting a dig in nearby Bilbao. Arsuaga is a visiting professor of the Department of Anthropology at the University College of London and since he has been a member of the Research Team investigating Pleistocene deposits in the Atapuerca Mountains Province of Burgos , Spain. The finds at Atapuerca have shed new light on the first humans in Europe. This contrasts with the secretive atmosphere surrounding the digs to near Orce , in southern Spain , which has yielded tools indicating human presence that predate the finds at Atapuerca.
