really liked it

A broad sweep through the prehistory and history of humankind with a fascinating thesis about 'what makes us different' - even from the other human species like the Neanderthals (I shan't spoil it for you). Never a dull moment among our ancestors' twists and turns.

Why did I not give 5 stars? Only because some of the final chapters' speculation about the future seemed, to me, a little dated and let the rest of the 'story' down. But perhaps that's just me.
