We are family/Get up everybody and sing! A.J. Jacobs took this Sister Sledge song lyric to heart after he received an email that read: "You don't know me, but I am your eighth cousin. And we have over 80,000 relatives of yours in our database." That prompted Jacobs to build the biggest family tree in history, which results in your invitation to the world's largest family reunion. It turns out, we are all related, and in a time of us-versus-them thinking, this book is a goofy yet profound exploration of what binds us all—where family begins, how far it goes, and the science that is revolutionizing the way we think about ethnicity, history, and the human species.
