18 of 20 people found the following review helpful By Jonathan S. Christie on October 7, 1999
Format: Paperback
As I began to read, I had a sense of deja vu - and no wonder, it was published in the UK as The Driving Force in 1989. I lent my copy to some miserable bastard who never returned it and it's now out of print, so I'm delighted to have re-acquired it, albeit inadvertantly; I recommend it highly. Don't be put off by any philosphical excess here, theories of our origin don't matter nearly as much as the biochemistry set out in this book which can literally restore your health if you have a Western degenerative disease. Crawford and Marsh elucidate an emerging paradigm.

Format: Paperback
I know quite a bit about nutrition and the problem with our modern diet, so I was mostly interested in their theories on how nutrition has shaped evolution.
The authors present some truly astounding theories on the evolution of humankind, and argue their case well. The book is a bit slow in the beginning, but once they start talking about the evolution of life from the algae onward, hand on to your hats!

This book was co-authored by David Marsh.Please ring 0044 171 460 2027 for details of other publications by D.Marsh. As co-author I wish to point out that the heterodox content of our major thesis as set out in this book has lead to severe academic ostracization of Michael Crawfurd in the intellectually impoverished and narrow milieu of biochemical nutritionists. Assuming that you, the potential reader, are not constrained by narrow academic rivalries may I invite you to enlarge your conception of the processes that have shaped our development and that of all the species with which we share this planet.

Format: Hardcover
A species must have the proper nutrition to thrive, if nutrition changes the species must adapt. Better adapted mutations survive and the species is changed. For other challenges the nutritional support for the adapting mutation must be present. For instance, man must have developed his big brain while he had access to omega 3 fatty acids ---most likely near a lake or the ocean. Today,the IQ in UK is declining to lack of proper nutrition
