Publisher's Summary

World renowned scientist Carl Sagan and acclaimed author Ann Druyan have written a Roots for the human species, a lucid and riveting account of how humans got to be the way we are. It shows with humor and drama that many of our key traits - self-awareness, technology, family ties, submission to authority, hatred for those a little different from ourselves, reason, and ethics - are rooted in the deep past, and illuminated by our kinship with other animals.
Astonishing in its scope, brilliant in its insights, and absolutely compelling, Shadows of Forgotten Ancestors is a triumph of popular science.

Excellent Production

I really miss Dr. Sagan. Thank you Ann and all involved in this production, for bringing these books to life. I read all of these when I was younger and my eyes were in better shape. Now that I have problems with vision but my hearing is still sharp, I am so grateful to be able to hear the words again.
