L.A. Times Book Prize (Science and Tech) FINALIST 2007


“A wonderful, balanced, and accurate account of the search for the oldest human ancestors and the personages involved in this quest. Gibbons provides a revealing window into the house of horrors that can be human origins research.”—Science“Thrilling…. Gibbons [writes] with great flair.” —Entertainment Weekly“An entertaining, richly detailed story, told with clarity and a commanding grasp of the complexities of human origins.”—The Plain Dealer“Colorful and readable. . . . Like a detective story that puts Sherlock Holmes, Hercule Poirot, Sam Spade, V.I. Warshawski, Easy Rawlins and Gil Grissom all in the same room, gives them a handful of clues, and lets them argue endlessly about the solution. Science writing is rarely this entertaining.”—San Jose Mercury News
