Our amazing evolution, what race really is and what makes us human
Who do you think you are? Have you ever thought about who you might be related to? What if we told you that you were related to EXTRAORDINARY EMPERORS, GREAT KINGS and MAGNIFICENT QUEENS? Well, your majesty, you are. In fact, everyone is. And geneticist Adam Rutherford is here to tell you how.
Come on an extraordinary adventure through millions of years of human history where you will learn the story of our species from evolution to dinosaurs to YOU! You will meet kings and queens, pharaohs and vikings, and see just how far and wide humans have migrated around the world. You'll discover why we're related to a super cheesy man and that no matter what skin colour you have, language you speak or place you are from - we all share the same small pool of ancestors. Armed with a deeper understanding of science and history, readers will learn how to dismantle common myths of who we really are - like what race is, where we come from, and what it means to be human.
Mind-boggling, entertaining and illuminating, this is the epic story of you and everyone who has ever lived!
