it was amazing
bookshelves: theuniverse, non-fiction
Read in November, 2005

YES! I'm into science, etc, the universe, you know, so this documentary-style book was right up my alley. I learned a lot, it was completely entertaining, and I couldn't believe how little we actually know about the spread of humans and their genetic history. But, I was impressed with the descriptions and analogies to help understand the scale of the universe and the world on a nano-level as well. I wished the book wouldn't end, but it did, so I had to stop reading. Recommended by my lovely sister Jenna.
