3.0 out of 5 stars Not bad, June 27, 2012
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Masters of the Planet: The Search for Our Human Origins (MacSci) (Kindle Edition)
Wasn't particularly thrilled with this one. very dry. The subject is one of interest to me, and I've read enough of it to say that if this was the first book you've read on the subject, it might be enough to get you to continue reading the subject.

You took 2 stars from this book solely because it is "dry". Do you mind to point out another one you find better on the same subject?

books must earn stars. They don't start with five from which others are subtracted. It's analogous to students: they aren't "given" grades, they need to earn them

Little out of your depth here aren't you? This was your last "review."

(24x36) Monkey Banana Shoot Art Print Poster by Poster Revolution

A must for any formal dining hall. We have ours mounted over the "King's Chair" over the fireplace. We force discussion of it at every sitting.

Lyn Robie, I think not my friend. You see, I wrote what I did about the monkey poster specifically for those who struggle with humor. these poor souls believe that their opinions, given a public stage via these "reviews" are of such dramatic consequence to the world that they actually begin to review other reviewers. fascinating study of social psyche, no? i rated the book fairly, and gave it its credit due, as was the monkey poster. tongue in cheek deserves tongue in cheek, dry deserves dry, and self-importance needs the occasional poke in the eye. ; )

Frank, I am saddened that it was necessary to un-hide your post. You seem a man with an inclination to overview. I'm just getting started on the topic of human evolution with an eye to a more informed understanding of the human condition and , hopefully , something I can hang for a while on my desire for meaning. What books, beginner to advanced, would you recommend?

I've read a bit on the subject - here are my recommendations:
Man the Hunted: Primates, Predators, and Human Evolution, Expanded Edition
The Fossil Trail: How We Know What We Think We Know About Human Evolution
The Last Human: A Guide to Twenty-Two Species of Extinct Humans
Catching Fire: How Cooking Made Us Human

Hope this helps.
