When we think of evolution, the image that likely comes to mind is the iconic series of primates morphing into a human being. Yet random events have played huge roles in determining who we are, and humanity has fallen under the influence of the "bell curve." Both our biology and our actions continue to be shaped by forces that we barely understand. Here Ian Tattersall and Rob DeSalle explore what the future of our species could hold, while simultaneously revealing what we didn't become—and what we won't become.
"A lively addition to the literature.... Tattersall and DeSalle deliver a highly learned lesson in what we do and don't inherit from our parents. A concise and useful book."—Kirkus Reviews
