Charles Darwin was mocked for suggesting that humans have apes for ancestors, but every scientific advance in the study of life in the last 150 years has confirmed the reality of evolution.
In "99% Ape: How Evolution Adds Up" leading experts explain this fundamental yet often complex subject and guide the general reader through the latest evidence.
They explore our own origins and the genealogy of living things, as well as highlighting some of the key turning points in evolutionary history.
Read the latest research on Darwin's finches and how new species evolve, uncover the flaws in 'intelligent design', find out what evolution has to say about psychology, the development of the human mind and morality, and how we are still evolving.
With the use of colour illustrations and clear diagrams throughout, this is a comprehensive introduction to evolution and the latest thinking on the subject.
