Praise

“The origins of [Mr Fromkin’s book] lie in a question posed to him by a Wall Street hedge-fund manager over lunch. ‘Can you tell the story of humanity and the universe and make it whole?'” Well, actually,’ Mr Fromkin replied, ‘Yes, I can.’ The result is a lyrical tale of humankind’s past, present, and future…Mr Fromkin recounts [it] exceedingly well, aided by a deep knowledge and an elegant prose style.–Andrew Stark, The Wall Street Journal

“Superbly crafted…Fromkin has the rare ability to convey a lot of information, often on difficult or sophisticated subjects, with a few beautifully constructed sentences.”–Roger Bishop, Bookpage

“Fascinating…engaging…Fromkin identifies the major social, educational, scientific, economic, and governmental trends he believes have significantly contributed to the evolution of humankind.”–Booklist
