This may not be for the average reader. Very, very detailed, specialized information.

I read a lot of science books. This is the best science book I've read in years!

An eye-opener on how complex we are. It was interesting to see all the research that has been done to help understand our species. Although this is a very complex subject, I appreciated how the author would work in a little humor along the way. Not light reading, but very rewarding.
