Human beings are a remarkable species and have come a long way in the last 100,000 years. With clarity and a deliberate pace, narrator Jonathan Hogan delivers this extensive and eclectic examination of how humans came off the African savanna and learned to create everything from poems to gardens and skyscrapers. How did our brains get so big? Where does language come from? How come we can't think without the use of metaphor? What can we do to improve our educational system? Hogan narrates these deep topics with a measured, almost plodding, gravitas, which seems at odds with author's celebratory prose. For Wilson, combining paleontology, sociobiology, myrmecology (the study of ants), and more is a joy. He can't wait to see where humans go next.
