Description: Who are we? Where do we come from? Where are we going? Philosophers and theologians have pondered these questions for millennia. Now, for the first time, science can begin to answer them. In his fascinating book, anthropologist and renaissance man Ian Tattersall tackles these questions and countless more as he takes us around the world with him, stopping in France to examine 30,000-year-old cave paintings, in Africa to see where our earliest ancestors left their bones, and in remote forests to spy on our closest relatives, the great apes. By offering wisdom gleaned from what we now know about fossil remains, primate behavior, brain physiology, cognition, prehistoric art, and archaeology, Tattersall offers a stunning picture of where humankind evolved, how Darwin's theories have changed, and what we reliably know about other primates' use of symbols, deception, toolmaking, and cooperation.

In a book that begins with the author crawling through a mile-long tunnel into a cave with magnificent paintings and ends with a dissection of our behavior at a New York restaurant, Tattersall offers a breathtaking look at human evolution. To understand who we truly are, what we are meant to do, and what our future may be, read Becoming Human. It is an amazing trip into the past and into the future.
