Book Description

November 1, 1998 0890512388 978-0890512388 1st
Squinting into the sunlight of a world separated from their own by millennia, a fragile family has emerged to shape the way we view ourselves. Everyone knows the name of this family...Neanderthal.

Since the first cave discoveries in Germany's Neander Valley, we have been fascinated by these thick-browed, powerful creatures. Who were they and where did they go? A centerpiece in study of human evolution, Neanderthal Man has, by his own mysterious demise, created more questions than he has answered. But what if Neanderthals could answer for themselves and tell us about their origins?

Now, for the first time, that is possible through the original research of Jack Cuozzo. Fascinated by Neanderthal Man for over two decades, Cuozzo, an orthodontist, has fashioned a research book that will clutch the attention of scientists and laypersons alike, for the Neanderthal family has finally emerged to tell a shocking story.

3.0 out of 5 stars Needed more editing February 4, 2001
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This was like two different books. The first 14 chapters (64 pages) were so dramatic and so well written that I could not put the book down. Dr. Cuozzo tells of his 1979 trip to the Museum of Man in Paris to do radiographic research on neandertal skulls. He discovered that the jaw of one specimen was not properly seated in its joint. When it was, the skull had a decidedly human, non-apelike cast. This is how Dr. Cuozzo x-rayed it. His agreement with the museum required him to submit duplicate x-rays to the museum, which he did when his work there, but not his trip to France, was completed. What happened next is the stuff of spy novels, and Ian Fleming could not have told it better than Dr. Cuozzo has in this book.
Unfortunately, the book then bogs down in a welter of technical detail. Eventually it becomes almost unreadable. After the first 14 chapters, it probably was not advisable to try to tell the story in chronological order. Dr. Cuozzo probably should have backed off and taken a more explanatory, and less breathless, approach to relating his main thesis. In any case, the book needed strong editorial direction in order to be more useful to lay people unschooled in disciplines such as orthodontics and forensic science. That level of editorial input was not available at Master Books, in Green Forest, Arkansas.
Dr. Cuozzo has done some important and valuable work, work that dovetails nicely with recent research indicating that the neandertals are, indeed, genetically related to modern humans. See, e.g., an article in the Feb. 2 issue of "Science" by Milford H. Wolpoff, David W. Frayer, and Keith Hunley.

4.0 out of 5 stars A new theory about an Old Man. May 21, 1999
The first part of this book reads like pages out of Indiana Jones' diary, only this is no fantasy, but fact. The following chapter titles give some idea of the flavour:
"The Chase" - author's van tearing recklessly through the streets of Paris with two sports cars in hot pursuit.
"Bathroom Doors to the Rescue" - attempted break-in to the author's hotel room in the middle of the night.
"Some Chilling News" - of a murder?
"Ancestor Meeting Followed by Bullets" - fired at the author's van.
What's the meaning of this cloak-and-dagger stuff?
Dr. Jack Cuozzo, an orthodontist of many years' experience, is the only creationist scientist to have gained access to original Neandertal fossil material for detailed study. This was before the museum authorities realised his creationist world-view - after that the doors were closed to him. These are the rules the evolutionist establishment (though not all evolutionist individuals) play by: deny creationists access to the research material where possible, and deny them the opportunity to publish the results of their research, then tell the world they are only armchair scientists. The physicist Robert Gentry was a victim of this discrimination (read about his experiences in "Creation's Tiny Mystery"), as well as the author of this book, whose work exposed the heavy bias of evolutionist anthropologists in reporting their research, even to the extent of doctoring the evidence. Is the secular scientific establishment pursuing an agenda to con the unsuspecting public into evolutionary beliefs? Many will shrug off such a conspiracy theory, but read this book before making up your mind.

How many books on human fossils begin with a dangerous high speed chase through the streets of Paris, complete with mysterious pursuers in sports cars? (If you don't believe me, read chapter one.) What are gripping descriptions of a drive-by shooting and a bizarre murder of an innocent scientist doing in a book on the dull topic of ancient fossil remains? What is this, Indiana Jones Meets James Bond?
I had read several of Dr. Cuozzo's technical and popular papers on the subject of human origins, and had high expectations for this book. It exceeds them. What I was not expecting was the ferocity and tactics of evolutionists seeking to suppress the evidence Dr. Cuozzo presents.
This is more than a dry book of science. It reveals the all too human side of paleoanthropology. When the famous British scientist, Lord Zuckerman, doubted whether there was much science to be found in the field of human fossil research he was hinting at the degree to which evolutionism, philosophic beliefs and assumptions distort what the public is taught about the evidence.
This book is the stuff of which Kuhnian scientific revolutions are made. A poorer explanation of the place of Neanderthal in the human family tree has been replaced by a superior one. Moreover, Cuozzo's findings of degeneration from Neanderthal to modern man mesh well with everything we know from empirical evolutionary biology. (C.f. Dr. Lee Spetner's book, Not by Chance) We are not evolving up from a primordial soup, but rather down from the Garden of Eden.

5.0 out of 5 stars This book may change the way you look at the world October 9, 2002
By A Customer
This is a fantastic scientific book. Other reviewers have said "The author never explains how he knows that Neanderthals are the equivalent of 600 year old humans". This reviewer must not have read the book because Cuozzo goes in depth into his reasoning using such evidence as jaw bone angles, tooth decay, skull growth rates, etc. He has clearly laid out the science, it is NOT unsupported.
Another reviewer says "If the author's speculations were correct he would be recognized and supported by open mind public and by the majority of experts". Is that right? The public is all open minded and the consensus of scientists is infallible? Check the history books!
Don't let these reviewers discourage you from reading this fantastic book. Cuozzo has done a great amount of research on these fossils, and gives a great amount of documentation in the book. This book may change the way you look at the world and humanity.
