really liked it

Very interesting book, but not something for people who are relatively blank when it comes to evolution, genetics and biology. Having read the 2 other books written by Nick Lane and a number of other books on the aforementioned topics I didn't have any problem with it. Chapter 9 was a bit odd but after a few pages this was quite interesting and enjoyable as well.

The book which covers 10 inventions, how they work, and where they originated from surprised with some more details into findings I briefly saw covered in other books. The author really takes his time to get into detail and puts developments into a larger perspective.
