If the Kanapoi elbow fossil is "indistinguishable" from modern man's, and the Lateoli footprints identical to ours, why haven't we revised our beliefs in human origins?
Why do scientists lament that hominid remains are too scarce for a solid picture to be painted - the sum total of which is regularly depicted as fitting on a pool table - when there are 4,000 or more hominid finds? What do they really mean, then?
Oh - and how could one lineage be shown to have evolved into another when - surprise - all of them have always been found to have existed contemporaneously?
Lubenow writes in an immensely readable style laced with a dry, understated humor. Even if you're not interested in the material, he's fun to read.
The book contains the painstaking fruit of his research - a chart showing Homo erectus, homo habilis, etc. finds, showing (according to evolutionary dating) they lived side by side - and why no book on evolutionary biology contains a similar chart. Damn, but science (real science) is fun.
