Human are the most inquisitive, imaginative, aggressive, and baffling animals on the planet, though we often do not think we are animals at all. So how well do we really know ourselves? Dissecting a mindset, poet and philosopher Melanie Challenger tells a story spanning the origin and history of Homo sapiens and examines how the belief in human uniqueness affects our lives, from our politics to the way we distance ourselves from other species. "[A] fascinating and cutting-edge meditation on humanity…. Every chapter is more riveting than the last, a truly remarkable read."—Booklist
