“The book will highlight studies from around the world on human evolution, including more than 20 years of Potts' own extraordinary field research. As a companion to the exhibition, the book will delve deeper into the discoveries that link the evolution of human traits to dramatic climate change over millions of years of Earth's ancient history, and it will also provide enriched context for the Human Origins Initiative's many program elements.” –Health Business Week
