Pandora's Seed: The Unforeseen Cost of Civilization
Jul 23, 2011
This book traces human evolution; specifically, that moment in time where we gave up being hunter-gatherers. Spencer Wells delves into the profound effects the dawn of our agricultural society has had on our current civilization. He covers subjects ranging from obesity, disease, mental illness, climate change and resource consumption. He argues how all these current challenges can be traced back to the development of agriculture. This book is well researched and very though provoking. I recommend this book to anyone interested in science or anthropology.
