How we became human beings

Before The Dawn gathers the oldest and the newest scientific discoveries about our physical, mental, and psychological evolution over the eons into one easy to read book. It may not read as easily as the local newspaper, but it is far easier to follow and understand than most books that are aimed only at the scientific community. Despite its being a fairly easy read, the book is so cogently written that it ought to be of interest to even the stuffiest academics. It isn't often that a reader can pick up a single book which does such a remarkable job of explaining why 50,000 years of incremental changes to our physical form, to our inellectual capability, and to our psyche have made we human beings the creatures we are today.
