Zajímavé čtení pokud se chcete dozvědět o původu našeho druhu! Autor psal s představou běžného čtenáře v hlavě, takže nemusíte mít titul z antropologie abyste si knihu užili. Palec nahoru hlavně za vědecký přístup - autor vám nechce vnutit svou tezi o vývojovém běhu, ale připouští možnost více variant, především v raných fázích evoluce ohledně australopitéků nebo homo rudolfensis. Jediným záporem je pro mne neuspořádanost kapitol, přeskakující mezi obdobími a druhy bez nějakého sledu.

This book is very well done but it's awfully slim for the subject. It really only offers a cursory summation of the state of knowledge on the origins of man at the time it was published. I think this would be a very good book to get someone interested in the topic but it's certainly not for anyone who wants to explore it in any depth.
