Magnificent Work Well Ahead Of Its Time!

Overall this is a great read if you’re interested in a scientific roadmap of human origins and the process of evolution. It will definitely leave you with lots to think about. Before Darwin’s breakthrough with On the Origin of Species, there was only “one” accepted view of human origins, and no other book came close to providing an explanation for human existence via science.

One fascinating element that I found with his work is the amount of evolutionary biology he was able to formulate a whole century prior to the discovery of DNA. Although Darwin’s theories were not accepted in the beginning, people with a scientific mindset began to explore the physical side of human origins and his views began to receive more attention.

Lastly, the reading done by Mr. Duquenoy was spectacular and very well paced and I loved his British accent. He was a great compliment to this book!

Couldn't pay attention

I had to stop after the third chapter, I couldn't listen to the narrator. I don't know if it was his accent, but I lost interest quickly.
