The Book of Humans

The Book of Humans

by Adam Rutherford

Waging war? Sex for pleasure? Creating art? Mastery of fire?  In this thrilling tour of the animal kingdom, Adam Rutherford tells the story of how we became the unique creatures we are today. Illuminated by the latest scientific discoveries, The Book of Humans is a dazzling compendium of what unequivocally fixes us as animals, and reveals how we are extraordinary among them.

"This superbly accessible discussion about who we humans really are is important and necessary" - Chris Packham

"An outstandingly clear and witty account that shows beyond doubt how much we are part of the animal world, and yet at the same time how different we have become" Henry Marsh
